When the slow, bumbling Quoyle is left looking after his two daughters after his philandering wife dies, he moves back to his native Newfoundland. Quoyle's bitter aunt joins the three shabby family members in the family home. Although the impromptu household battles the elements on their craggy, isolated point, the emotional battles within are often more challenging. Annie Proulx's Pulitzer Prize-winning The Shipping News is a tale about a modern family rebuilding itself on traditional ground. One of the most acclaimed novels of the 20th century, it is a story about family, memory and the indefatigable spirit of humanity.
