Annie Proulx's highly acclaimed, international bestseller and
Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Quoyle is a hapless, hopeless hack
journalist living and working in New York. When his no-good wife is
killed in a spectacular road accident, Quoyle heads for the land of
his forefathers -- the remotest corner of far-flung Newfoundland.
With 'the aunt' and his delinquent daughters -- Bunny and Sunshine
-- in tow, Quoyle finds himself part of an unfolding, exhilarating
Atlantic drama. 'The Shipping News' is an irresistible comedy of
human life and possibility.
