/ Lead title The 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 stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger, two of Hollywood's hottest young actors and, as such, should attract a wide audience. / The film release should rekindle mass market interest in this book, to the same effect as the film tie-in edition to The Motorcycle Diaries.
Annie Proulx published her first novel Postcards in 1991 at the age of 56. She is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Shipping News, the acclaimed novels Accordion Crimes and That Old Ace in the Hole, and the short story collections Close Range and Bad Dirt.
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
