    From Annie Proulx, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Shipping News and Brokeback Mountain, comes her masterpiece, 10 years in the writing - an epic, dazzling, violent, magnificently dramatic novel about taming the wilderness and destroying the forest, set over three centuries.

    Brokeback Mountain is set in the beautiful, wild landscape of Wyoming where cowboys live as they have done for generations. Hard, lonely lives in unforgiving country. Jack Twist and Ennis del Mar are two ranch hands glad to have found each other's company where none had been expected. But companionship becomes something else on Brokeback Mountain, something not looked for, something deadly.

    Accordion Crimes opens in 1890 in Sicily as an accordion maker completes his finest instrument and dreams of owning a music store in America. He and his eleven-year-old son, carrying little more than the accordion, travel to New Orleans. Within a year, the accordion maker is murdered by an anti-Italian lynching mob, but his instrument carries Proulx's story as it falls into the hands of various immigrants who carry it from Iowa to Texas, from Maine to Louisiana, looking for a decent life.

    I Annie Proulx' mesterlige historier er livet råt og hårdt, landskabet stort og åbent. Som den betagende natur, fortællingerne udspiller sig i, drives bogens personer af en kompromisløs og kraftfuld energi. Her er vanviddet og ensomheden på spil, men også den uforudsigelige og svimlende kærlighed. I denne kritikerroste samling findes fortællingen bag den prisbelønnede storfilm Brokeback Mountain. Som det sker her, oplever vi i flere af historierne humor og skønhed i et møde med smerte og desperation, der vidner om en dyb og elementær menneskelighed.
