The Venice Sketchbook - Rhys Bowen - A Short Summary and Review

The Shipping News - Annie Proulx - A Short Summary & Review

 


A short summary of The Shipping News:

A reporter learns to live again in Killick-Claw.

My favorite Annie Proulx quote from the book:

"One of the tragedies of real life is that there is no background music."


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Who has left you broken?

Who has helped you heal?

My review of The Shipping News:

A real-life story about real-life people.

Colorful characters and great imagery.

I got cold reading it.
