What am I giving away?

I am giving away a used copy of The Shipping News by Annie Proulx.

This the blurb:

When Quoyle’s two-timing wife meets her just desserts, he retreats with his two daughters to his ancestral home on the starkly beautiful Newfoundland coast, where a rich cast of local characters and family members all play a part in Quoyle’s struggle to reclaim his life. As Quoyle confronts his private demons — and the unpredictable forces of nature and society — he begins to see the possibility of love without pain or misery.

The Shipping News

Above is a picture of the actual book you will be getting. It is in good condition, but it IS a used book, so please don’t expect it to be pristine!

Oh, and, by the way, this is the novel that is “Ambitious and accomplished…The characterisation is rich, the dialogue both original and convincing.” that I asked for under No. 5 in my Quizzical Monday post here.

    • Thank, Judith, for recommending it to my visitors. I have to admit I was not too fussed on it, but I think it was because I saw the film before I read the book. I loved the film and wanted to recreate the experience by reading the book, and that hardly ever works.


  1. That book is on my list but not on my shelf, so I would love your copy. I don’t think I’ve ever commented here before so hello from Denmark, you are on my google reader 🙂
