Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Annie Proulx's The Shipping News is a vigorous, darkly comic, and at times magical portrait of the contemporary North American family. Quoyle, a third-rate newspaper hack, with a "head shaped like a crenshaw, no neck, reddish hair...features as bunched as kissed fingertips," is wrenched violently out of his workaday life when his two-timing wife meets her just desserts. An aunt convinces Quoyle and his two emotionally disturbed daughters to return with her to the starkly beautiful coastal landscape of their ancestral home in Newfoundland. Here, on desolate Quoyle's Point, in a house empty except for a few mementos of the family's unsavory past, the battered members of three generations try to cobble up new lives. Newfoundland is a country of coast and cove where the mercury rarely rises above seventy degrees, the local culinary delicacy is cod cheeks, and it's easier to travel by boat and snowmobile than on anything with wheels. In this harsh place of cruel storms, a collapsing fishery, and chronic unemployment, the aunt sets up as a yacht upholsterer in nearby Killick-Claw, and Quoyle finds a job reporting the shipping news for the local weekly, the Gammy Bird (a paper that specializes in sexual-abuse stories and grisly photos of car accidents). As the long winter closes its jaws of ice, each of the Quoyles confronts private demons, reels from catastrophe to minor triumph--in the company of the obsequious Mavis Bangs; Diddy Shovel the strongman; drowned Herald Prowse; cane-twirling Beety; Nutbeem, who steals foreign news from the radio; a demented cousin the aunt refuses to recognize; the much-zippered Alvin Yark; silent Wavey; and old Billy Pretty, with his bag of secrets. By the time of the spring storms Quoyle has learned how to gut cod, to escape from a pickle jar, and to tie a true lover's knot.… (mere)

    Vi, de druknede : roman af Carsten Jensen (Jannes)
    Jannes: Proulx focuses on one particular and personal fate, Jensen writes about a whole town in the voice of a vague, collective "we". The former places her story in modern-day Newfoundland, the later in 19th and early 20th century Denmark. What they have in common is the ever-present sea, its influence and demands, and how the people that relies on if for sustenance has learned to accept its whims and live with the consequences of a life at sea.… (mere)

Really nicely written, and sufficiently unfamiliar in terms of landscape, local culture, etc., that it held my interest. ( )

Bellissima la vicenda e belli i personaggi di questo romanzo ambientato sull'isola di Terranova. Quoyle, è un piccolo giornalista, un uomo mite e privo di fascino, per molti un perdente sicuramente per la moglie infedele che improvvisamente lo pianta con due bambine a cui pensare. Lascia Brooklyn e si trasferisce in una terra estranea e crudele, spazzata dal gelo e dal vento. Egli si mette alla prova e riesce a riprendere possesso della propria esistenza, in rapporto strettissimo con l'ambiente e la natura, con il mare e la sua gente. La storia di Quoyle si dipana sulla metafora della navigazione, la vita umana trova simboli nell'arte marinara di annodare nodi. ( )

Really enjoyed this book.....(I do not know what my subconscious was assuming this book was about, but it was nothing like what I was expecting). The Newfoundland environment as portrayed in this novel is absolutely haunting.....and that is a good thing...I wanna go! Really clever writing....characters speak out loud in quotes, then finish up in their minds (without quotes). Although this was in fact about an awkward unusual man......and we all know there are many, many of those out there.....this was so much more. Lots of humanity......different approaches to death......surviving in the harsh place that is Newfoundland......lost loves.....lost lives......running a newspaper.......new loves......tragic histories....dramatic weather......living off of the sea.......and all done with a gentle, nudging prose that takes us there without the story becoming predictable, or god help us, silly. We had our first Maine snowstorm of the year as i was finishing this up......and afterwards, as I shoveled my little heart out, I could not stop thinking about Quoyle, the story, the landscape, the sea. When the book is over and i continue to think about it, that is a very good thing! Bravo! ( )

Was supposed to read this at the end of Mystic F02 and am pretty sure I only skimmed it. Saw the movie last year and now concede that this might be worth a legitimate try....no idea what I did with my copy back then...

Reading, finally, now that I have some brain power back. Plan on enjoying. ( )

Quirky, funny exploits of the unlikely protagonist Quoyle and his departure from journalistic and day-to-day uselessness as he acquaints himself with the place where he apparently belongs. Reader impressed by dry, sharp narrative. ( )

It has been – astonishingly – fifteen years since I read the novel but its memory is undimmed, its glorious set pieces still vivid before my eyes.
 
In E. Annie Proulx's vigorous, quirky novel "The Shipping News," set in present-day Newfoundland, there are indeed a lot of drownings. The main characters are plagued by dangerous undercurrents, both in the physical world and in their own minds. But the local color, ribaldry and uncanny sorts of redemption of Ms. Proulx's third book of fiction keep the reader from slipping under, into the murk of loss.

"In a knot of eight crossings, which is about the average-size knit. there are 256 different 'over-and-under' arrangements possible. . . Make only one change in this 'over and under' sequence and either an entirely different knot is made or no knot at all may result."

Quoyle: A coil of rope

"A Flemish flake is a spiral coil of one layer only. It is made on deck so that it may be walked on if necessary."


THE ASHLEY BOOK OF KNOTS
In the old days a love-sick sailor might send the object of his affections a length of fishline loosely tied in a true-lover's knot. If the knot as sent back as it came the relationship was static. If the knot returned home snugly drawn up the passion was reciprocated. But if the knot was capsized - tacit advice to ship out.
"The strangle knot will hold a coil well . . . It is first tied loosely and then worked snug."

"Cast Away, to be forced from a ship by a disaster."
