“There was some open space between what he knew and what he tried to believe, but nothing could be done about it, and if you can’t fix it you’ve got to stand it.”

Devastating. Beautiful. Proulx is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.

I tried to read the book, abandoned it, saw the movie, then tackled the book again. Compelling movie; book is not my cup of tea.
