"A Resolute Man" by Annie Proulx Originally published in the March 21, 2016 issue of The New Yorer. Click here to read the story in its entirety on The New Yorker website.
I’m definitely a fan of Annie Proulx’s work, to the point I’m tempted to try to read her 736-page novel, Barkskins, that is coming out in June. But wait, I have read some of that novel already, when an excerpt of it, “Rough Deeds,” was published in the 2013 Summer Fiction issue (see our thoughts here). “A Resolute Man,” also, is an excerpt from Barkskins.
I look forward to your thoughts below! Are any of you going to take on Barkskins? Any thoughts on Proulx in general?
