1 Proulx, E. Annie Accordion Crimes
Scribner 1996 0684195488 / 9780684195483 1st Edition Hardcover F/NF 
A highly collectible first edition, tight clean copy, protected in a new br odart wrapper, an unclipped dj, not an ex-lib. America's ethnic minorities have rarely been rendered with the insight, intuition and unsentimental candor that Proulx brings to the large canvas of characters and reaches of landscape in this ambitious work. The narrative has eight parts, each composed of short vignettes that depict the cultural baggage the attitudes, behaviors and social conditioning that immigrants brought with them, and the ways in which they joined, yet held aloof from, American society.

4 Proulx, Annie Heart Songs and Other Stories
Scribner 1995 0020360754 / 9780020360759 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Before she wrote her Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller The Shipping News, E . Annie Proulx was already producing some of the finest short fiction in th e country. Here are her collected stories, including two new works never be fore anthologized. These stories reverberate with rural tradition, the rites of nature, and the rituals of small-town life. The country is blue-collar New England; the characters are native families and the dispossessed working class, whose heritage is challenged by the neorural bourgeoisie from the city; and the themes are as elemental as the landscape: revenge, malice, greed, passion. Told with skill and profundity and crafted by a master storyteller, these are lean, tough tales of an extraordinary place and its people.
