Praise For The Shipping News…
The Shipping News is that rare creation, a lyric page-turner.
The writing is charged with sardonic wit -- alive, funny, a little threatening; packed with brilliantly original images...and, now and then, a sentence that simply takes your breath away.
San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle
Annie Proulx's stunning, big-hearted The Shipping News thaws the frozen lives of its characters and warms readers.
