December 2, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

Tom Chandler over at Trout Underground (“Annie Proulx Fan? Read On”) uncovered a piece in New West magazine about Annie Proulx, who most know as the author of “Brokeback Mountain” and The Shipping News. Jenny Shank atttended Proulx’s recent talk on Wyoming’ fast-disappearing resources and writes: “The Pulitzer-Prize-winning novelist revealed that she hasn’t written any fiction for three years. Instead, she has been collaborating with a group of Wyoming scientists and historians to produce a forthcoming book on the state’s Red Desert.”
