The Shipping News: In this lively dark comedy, a hapless man named Quoyle is grief-stricken after his no-good wife dies in a car crash. He packs up his dog, his children, and an ancient aunt and returns to the old family home in the town of Killick-Claw, on the coast of Newfoundland, where he gets a job with the local newspaper covering the shipping news. Gradually, with the help of some members of the local population (in particular a young woman named Wavey), Quoyle becomes able to handle his life and become a good father to his children. THE SHIPPING NEWS won Annie Proulx the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. It was made into a movie in 2001, starring Kevin Spacey, Julianne Moore, Cate Blanchett, and Judi Dench.

Postcards: Winner of the Pen/Faulkner Award. Annie Proulx tells the story of Loyal Blood, who leaves the failing family farm in Vermont after World War II and goes west to see if he can do better. Each chapter in Loyal's odyssey is prefaced with one of the post cards he sends back home--where life is getting more and more bleak. Proulx's first novel, full of the daily minutiae of trying to keep a farm alive.

Quoted shipping rate is for media mail with delivery confirmation. Media mail generally takes 4-10 days for delivery in the continental U.S., but may take as long as three weeks (and longer to Alaska and Hawaii).
