Annie Proulx's highly acclaimed, international bestseller and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel.
Quoyle is a hapless, hopeless hack journalist living and working in New York.
When his no-good wife is killed in a spectacular road accident, Quoyle heads for the land of his forefathers - the remotest corner of far-flung Newfoundland.
With 'the aunt' and his delinquent daughters - Bunny and Sunshine - in tow, Quoyle finds himself part of an unfolding, exhilarating Atlantic drama. 'The Shipping News' is an irresistible comedy of human life and possibility.
