The Shipping News

Annie Proulx

1993 Fourth Estate

Recommendation: Film reviews

Very odd book. A bit like Forrest Gump but more sad than funny. Quoyle (we never know his first name) is one of life's losers but somehow a bit of good luck occasionally comes his way. The ending could be construed as "happy" but Newfoundland is rather depressing at the best of times.
