About the Author

Annie Proulx est née en 1935 dans le Connecticut. Pour son premier roman, Cartes postales (1992), elle reçoit le PEN/Faulkner Award et l'année suivante, avec Noeuds et dénouements (Cahiers rouges, 2005), elle obtient le prestigieux prix Pulitzer et le National Book Award. Suivront Les Crimes de l'accordéon (Grasset, 2004), Un as dans la manche (Grasset, 2005) et la nouvelle Brokeback Mountain (Grasset, 2006), qui a inspiré le célèbre film d'Ang Lee. Considérée comme l'un des plus grands écrivains américains, Annie Proulx vit aujourd'hui dans le Wyoming.

Reviews

"Gripping and tense...A work of literary art."--Annie Proulx
"A rich and challenging psychodrama...with echoes of East of Eden and Brokeback Mountain."--Peter Beech, The Guardian
"Savage writes like thunder and lightning...Some books are like aquifers under the desert. They rest patiently, bubbling up in springs when we most need them."--Susan Salter Reynolds, Los Angeles Times
"A pitch-perfect evocation of time and place...Savage is a master of narrative technique."--Amanda Heller, Boston Globe
"Thomas Savage is a writer of the first order, and he possesses in abundance the novelist's highest art-the ability to illuminate and move."--The New Yorker
"Thomas Savage is a writer of real consequence...a masterful novelist."--Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post
"The Power of the Dog offers so many pleasures readers will be forgiven if they do not immediately notice that it also engages the grandest themes-among them, the dynamics of the family, the varieties of loves, and the ethos of the American West. Put simply, The Power of the Dog is a masterpiece."--Larry Watson, author of Montana 1948
