Inhaltsangabe zu „The Shipping News“ von Annie Proulx

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.

    the strength of annie proulx' characters is that you think of them as real people. in this case, you can almost feel the coastal wind in your hair and taste the blueberries which they collect. it is a story of seperation, death, loss, but also of finding new friends, a new love even. in the center of the book is a man (and his child) who retreats to an inherited family house in new foundland where he starts a new life with all the little things that come along with a small-village-life. a worthwile and interesting read. reminded me a little of john irving, but the language is much more dense and richer.
