Brokeback Mountain

Brokeback Mountain - Annie Proulx

I picked this up at the library last night because it was a tiny book, perfect for today's lunch time read.

 

I'm ashamed to say that I attempted to watch the film, but fell asleep about 45 minutes in. Now that I've read this story, I'm going to revisit the film.

 

This is the first time I've read Annie Proulx. It is amazing how much story she covers in so few pages. Her spare prose, concise style and quiet intensity really worked for me.

 

An absolutely beautiful, heartbreaking love story! Makes me want to crack open a bottle of whiskey and roll a joint.
