  • Postcards laments the loss of old skills while recognising the squalid, backbreaking struggle for survival of farming life and acknowledging the tackiness of the white American Dream. It is written from the heart and—for its raspy dialogue, laconic humour and beautiful description of the natural world—deserves to be widely read.

Our Thoughts

Through her exquisite prose and infinite landscapes, Proulx evokes the loneliness of a transient existence, of rural strife and family ruin.
