Shipping News, by Annie Proulx
Join Lakeview Branch Library's February 11th Book Club meeting to discuss Shipping News, by Pulitzer Prize winner for Literature, Annie Proulx. Proulx takes two alienated and lonely, rootless people, then develops them into interesting and warm people and does it with lyrical writing. The stark and isolated, haunting island, the murder mystery, the dark past of the family members are the elements contrasting the beautiful metamorphosis and evolving love of two healing people. Proulx is a master writer and this novel is proof!
