Annie Proulx

Annie Proulx’s previous short story collection Heart Songs was universally acclaimed: ‘A shining collection…a polished, unflinching work.’ (The Times).

The new collection includes Brokeback Mountain, the highly-acclaimed and award-winning tale set in the beautiful, wild landscape of Wyoming where cowboys live as they have done for generations. Also included is the story The Mud Below that reveals the world of the rodeo, buckle bunnies and the quiet ambition of the boy who gives up everything to ride bulls.

Remarkable and memorable, these new short stories will confirm Annie Proulx’s status as one of the great story-tellers of our times.
