Wyoming Stories Box Set

Annie Proulx

Annie Proulx’s three volumes of Wyoming Stories – Close Range, Bad Dirt and Fine Just the Way It Is – are modern classics, and one of the stories, Brokeback Mountain, was made into an Oscar-winning film. This box set gathers them all together in new, beautiful edition of only 750 copies.

For Close Range and Bad Dirt, it is the first time they have been published in the UK as hardbacks, while Fine Just the Way It Is is the UK first edition.

Praise for Wyoming Stories:

‘Like a mystic seeing the transfigured universe, she recreates the beauty of ordinary things.’ Independent on Sunday

‘These are tales we can almost feel in our bones.’ Sunday Times

‘As lean, confident and exact as a stylist, and as good a storyteller, as you could hope for.’ Observer

‘Individually, these eleven tales have a tautness and an urgency that are never less than exhilarating. Collectively, they encapsulate an entire, unremittingly bleak world. To find the pulse of humanity in such desperate lives betokens a writer of genius.’ Daily Telegraph

‘One of the shrewdest chroniclers of contemporary America.’ Sunday Telegraph
