Synopsis

Edna Annie Proulx is an American journalist and author. Her second novel, The Shipping News , won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the National Book Award for fiction in 1994. The novel centers on Quoyle, a third-rate hack journalist who lives and works in upstate New York. His parents’ commit suicide and his adulterous, abusive wife sells their daughters to a black market adoption agency. When his wife dies in a car accident, his aunt persuades him to retreat to their ancestral home in Newfoundland for a new beginning. There, Quoyle grows in fortitude and emotional strength while learning disturbing secrets about his family’s past. Proulx’s writing is original and startling, a darkly humorous portrait of the unpredictability of human nature.
