Returning the the territory of "Brokeback Mountain, " National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize-winner Annie Proulx delivers a stunning and visceral collection of new stories. In Fine just the Way it is, she has expanded the limits of the form. Her stories about multiple generations of Americans struggling through life in the West are a ferocious, dazzling panorama of American folly and fate. Proulx's characters try to climb out of poverty and desperation but get cut down as if the land itself wanted their blood. Deeply sympathetic to the men and women fighting to survive in this harsh place, Proulx turns their lives into fiction with the power of myth -- and leaves the listener in awe.

My first time with Annie Proulx & chosen primarily due to reader, Will Paton, who is always enjoyable. Some (most) of the stores are sad facts of life, some with humor, some not. Yes, I liked it.
