Read full description of the books:



Eine unvergessliche, tragikomische Geschichte, erzählt von der mehrfach preisgekrönten Autorin Annie Proulx, in deren herb-poetischer Sprache jene fremde Gegend zum Sehnsuchtsland wird.
„Schiffsmeldungen“ fürs Lokalblatt soll Quoyle jetzt schreiben. Quoyle, der ewige Versager und Pechvogel, den es aus dem Staat New York auf die Felseninsel Neufundland im Osten Kanadas verschlagen hat. Quoyle, der immer schon panische Angst vor dem Wasser hatte. Und doch findet er hier in dieser kargen Landschaft, wo seine Vorfahren siedelten, so etwas wie Glück und für sich und seine beiden Töchter so etwas wie ein Zuhause …
Der Roman, der Annie Proulx berühmt machte!

-----------

In this touching and atmospheric novel set among the fishermen of Newfoundland, Proulx tells the story of Quoyle. From all outward appearances, Quoyle has gone through his first 36 years on earth as a big schlump of a loser. He's not attractive, he's not brilliant or witty or talented, and he's not the kind of person who typically assumes the central position in a novel. But Proulx creates a simple and compelling tale of Quoyle's psychological and spiritual growth. Along the way, we get to look in on the maritime beauty of what is probably a disappearing way of life.
