Film tie-in edition of the story by Annie Proulx, now a movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Randy Quaid, Anne Hathaway and Heath Ledger. Brokeback Mountain is set in the beautiful, wild landscape of Wyoming where cowboys live as they have done for generations. Hard, lonely lives in unforgiving country. Jack Twist and Ennis del Mar are two ranch hands -- 'drop-out country boys with no prospects, brought up to hard work and privation, both rough-mannered, tough spoken' -- glad to have found each other's company where none had been expected. But companionship becomes something else on Brokeback Mountain, something not looked for, something deadly.

Reviews

Praise for Bad Dirt: 'Proulx writes in wonderful stews, everything thrown in together...the stories demand a second reading.' Daily Telegraph 'Her keen eye for idiosyncrasy ensures her continuing reputation as one of the shrewdest chroniclers of contemporary America.' David Robson, Sunday Telegraph Praise for The Shipping News: 'A very impressive achievement. So funny, so full of delights.' Guardian 'As stark and ruggedly beautiful as the storm-battered coast of Newfoundland itself.' Sunday Telegraph Praise for Accordion Crimes: 'The detail is breathtaking, her ear for dialogue matchless, her observation unsentimental, her pace infectious. She tackles death, sex and the gruesome with black hilarity and the skills of a born storyteller. Rich and dense, Accordion Crimes is a splendid novel.' The Times 'The power and presence of this book cannot be overstated.' Sunday Express 'Exhilarating magic, leaves you begging for an encore.' Daily Telegraph
