    Annie Proulx's masterful language and fierce love of Wyoming are evident in this collection of stories about loneliness, quick violence, and wrong kinds of love. In "The Mud Below", a rodeo rider's obsession marks the deepening fissures between his family life and self-imposed isolation. In "The Half-Skinned Steer", an elderly fool drives west to the ranch he grew up on for his brother's funeral, and dies a mile from home.

    Susan L. Stewart says: "A Wonderfully Ironic and Surprising Read"
    "For deviants only"

    Story

    If you know someone suicidal and want to drive them over the cliff, give this book. I feel like my soul has been assaulted. Ms. Prouix's style is likened to Cormac McCarthy. I like Cormac McCarthy and this is nothing like it. It feels like Prouix' intention is to corrupt my psyche with one disturbing image after another and I suppose for some deviant personalities that is appealing, but not for me.
