The Shipping News by E. Annie Proulx

Quoyle is a hapless hack NewYork journalist. When his wife is killed in a road accident, Quoyle heads for Newfoundland with his two daughters and his aunt and finds himself a part of an exhilarating Atlantic drama. The narrative is as quirky, original and unforgettable as the characters.

E. Annie Proulx was born in Connecticut. The Shipping News won a Pulitzer Prize and The Irish Times International Fiction Prize.
