Reviews

The New York Observer Proulx is our laureate of landscape, the expansive descriptions of natural phenomena worthy of Barry Lopez or Edward Hoagland. [Her] fiction has become even richer book by book. With this funny and haunting panorama...she has managed to outdo her previous outdoing.
USA Today Annie Proulx's writing is charged with wit -- alive, funny, packed with brilliantly original images.
The Boston Globe [In] That Old Ace in the Hole, Proulx's hardscrabble wit and wisdom are heightened by the force of her language -- her bone-deep feel for its curves and crevices.
