Postcards by E. Annie Proulx

Image of Postcards

ards is E. Annie Proulx's 1992 novel about the life and travels of Loyal Blood across the American West. The critically acclaimed predecessor to Proulx's award-winning The Shipping News, it cuts between stories of Loyal's travels and the stories of his own family whom he keeps in contact with for decades by postcard. The novel's ambiguous content provides a more personal view of America in the 20th Century, dealing with themes of War, Industrialisation and The American Dream. It also provides a glimpse into the way a family unit is slowly destroyed due to this arrival of a new age. Fate is one of the chief themes that the novel holds to, and the idea that no matter how hard one works for a better life, fate will never let you.
