About Brokeback Mountain

Two young guys who meet in Wyoming in 1963 forge a abrupt psychological and intimate attachment, but shortly piece techniques. As their separate lives play out with marriages, kids and jobs, they reunite for short liaisons on camping trips in remote settings over the course of 20 years.

About Annie Proulx

Proulx (born Edna Ann Proulx, her initial name honoring 1 of her mother's aunts), was born in Norwich, Connecticut, to parents of English and Native American/French-Canadian ancestry. Five of her maternal forebears came to America found on the Mayflower. She graduated from Deering High School in Portland, Maine, then attended Colby College "for a brief period in the 1950s", where she met her initially spouse Ridgley H. Bullock III, heir to a considerable fortune. She later returned to university, studying at the University of Vermont from 1966 to 1969, and graduated cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a Bachelor of Arts in History in 1969. She got her Master of Arts from Sir George Williams University (today Concordia University) in Montreal, Quebec in 1973 and pursued, but didn't complete, her Ph.D. Starting as a journalist, her initially published function of fiction is considered "The Customs Lounge", a research fiction story published in the September 1963 problem of If, under the byline "E.A. Proulx". Another contender - possibly earlier, was a research fiction story called "All the Pretty Little Horses", which appeared in teenager magazine "Seventeen" potentially a year or 2 before this. She subsequently published stories in Esquire magazine and Gray's Sporting Journal in the late 1970s, eventually publishing her initial collection in 1988 and her initial novel in 1992. Subsequently, she has been granted NEA (in 1992) and Guggenheim (in 1993) fellowships.

A limited years after getting much attention for The Shipping News, she had the following comment on her celebrity status: "It's not advantageous for one's view of human nature, that's for certain. You start to find, when invites are from festivals and universities to come read (for an hr for a significant sum of money), that the organizations are head-hunting for trophy writers. Most don't especially care about your writing or what you're striving to state. You're there as a human object, 1 that has won a prize. It offers you a truly odd, ginger form of sensation."

In 1997, Annie Proulx was granted the Dos Passos Prize. Proulx has twice won the O. Henry Prize for the year's ideal brief story. In 1998, she won for "Brokeback Mountain," which had appeared in The New Yorker on October 13, 1997. Proulx won again the following year for "The Mud Below," which appeared in The New Yorker June 22 and 29, 1999. Both appear in her 1999 collection of brief stories, Close Range: Wyoming Stories. The lead story in this collection, entitled "The Half-Skinned Steer," was chosen by writer Garrison Keillor for inclusion in The Best American Short Stories 1998, (Proulx herself edited the 1997 edition of the series) and later by novelist John Updike for inclusion in The Best American Short Stories of the Century (1999). In 2001 Proulx was among the writers heavily criticized by Brian Reynolds Myers in his polemical function A Reader's Manifesto.

Proulx lived for over thirty years in Vermont, has married and divorced 3 occasions, and has 3 sons along with a daughter (called Jonathan, Gillis, Morgan, and Sylvia, a.k.a. "Muffy"). In 1994, she moved to Wyoming, where she currently resides, spending piece of the year in northern Newfoundland on a tiny cove adjacent to L'Anse aux Meadows.

Ann Proulx has 4 sisters, scattered across the country: twins, Joyce and Janet who reside in Louisana and Florida respectively; Roberta, of Vermont, and Jude, another author who lives in Wales. Proulx chose to have small contact with any of her family over time. In 2007, she attended a memorial for her dad, George Napoleon Proulx, at which all five sisters were together for the very first time in over 40 years.
