Annie Proulx's highly acclaimed, international bestseller and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. Quoyle is a hapless, hopeless hack journalist living and working in New York. When his no-good wife is killed in a spectacular road accident, Quoyle heads for the land of his forefathers -- the remotest corner of far-flung Newfoundland. With 'the aunt' and his delinquent daughters -- Bunny and Sunshine -- in tow, Quoyle finds himself part of an unfolding, exhilarating Atlantic drama. 'The Shipping News' is an irresistible comedy of human life and possibility.

Review:

`The book is written in such a way as to challenge and educate through the use of exercises, scenarios and activities. Something it does rather well.... A well-written, practical and informative publication... of value to supervisees, supervisors and all those involved in counsellor and supervisor training' - Counselling Psychology Review

`This book... argues that the social context is important for the individual client, supervisee and supervisor, as is the context in which the work and supervision are done... a useful addition to the growing literature on supervision, which is seen as a positive and desirable provision throughout the book... it is a clear, well-written and enjoyable book, containing helpful information for both supervisees and supervisors... it extends the implications for supervision of working with the recognition of the social context as well as the inner world' - Transformations, The PCSR Journal

`This book addresses an important area of counselling-exploring how client characteristics and organisational issues `impact ...on therapeutic work, both with clients and with their counsellors in supervision'.... This thought-provoking book reminds us how much the client's problem is outside their control, and how we as supervisors and counsellors may work with that' - Counselling

Review:

Bruce Allen "USA Today" The writing is charged with sardonic wit -- alive, funny, a little threatening; packed with brilliantly original images...and, now and then, a sentence that simply takes your breath away.

Stephen Jones "Chicago Tribune""The Shipping News" is that rare creation, a lyric page-turner.

Roz Spafford "San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle" Annie Proulx's stunning, big-hearted "The Shipping News" thaws the frozen lives of its characters and warms readers.
