Obviously I am late to the party a common theme with me but I had no idea I watched the movie years ago and loved it and only just realised my work library held the audio CD I grabbed it uick smart Excellent and uality narration by Campbell Scott this is a love story that is never fully realised by our two leading men Meeting in summertime 1960’s Ennis and Jack meet as ranch hands their physical attraction immediate Something catches these two men and summer after summer they try to grab back what they felt that first time Both marry and carry on with lives that lack lustre when apart both joining again for snatches of time in the years to come Brutally honest writing as seen in the above excerpt it is such succinct writing where ridiculous amount of depth is packed into something so small in volume but so large in everything else I loved the scene where two work shirts joined together unwashed sitting inside each other is a metaphor for a forever love joined together never to be parted If you can't fix it you have to stand it I loved it can you tell?

Preserve it The New Yorker won the National Magazine Award for Fiction for its publication of Brokeback Mountain and the story was included in Prize Stories 1998 The O Henry Awards In gorgeous and haunting prose Proulx limns the difficult dangerous affair between two cowboys that survives everything but the world's violent intolerance Late to the party but I when I did get there I sure as heck enjoyed myselfThis book was given to me by a friend who said I cant believe you have never read this or at least seen the movie Well I hadn't and at 60 pages this short novela has a lot to say and really does pack uite a punchOriginally published in The New Yorker in 1997 for which it won the National Magazine Award for fiction 1998 In 1963 two young men Ennis del Mar and Jack Twish are hired for the summer to look after sheep at a seasonal grazing range on the fictional Brokeback mountain in Wyoming where they form a relationship that emotionally attaches them for the rest of their lives Terrific storytelling in so few pages and the emotion I felt while reading it really did surprise me The author's writing and understanding of the characters really makes this story what it is strong and sympathic characters make for great stories and I really found a lot of emotion in this little novel A timeless story that that made me think great character development and writingThe one thing I did realise when finishing the novel is I DONT want to see the movie as I think the book works very well and while the movie may be great I dont want it to spoil my first impressions on reading this novel as even the actors playing the books characters are way too cute for the characters described in the book I really think a book group would get a great discussion from this one

Brokeback MountainAnnie Proulx has written some of the most original and brilliant short stories in contemporary literature and for many readers and reviewers Brokeback Mountain is her masterpiece Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist two ranch hands come together when they're working as sheepherder and camp tender one summer on a range above the tree line At fi I rarely go to the movies Truly the last movie I saw in a theater was Lincoln in 2012 But one day back in 2005 a good friend called and wondered if I'd like to spend that snowy Sunday in a theater with her watching something called Brokeback Mountain Brokeback Mountain? Never heard of it Sure I'd goAlmost no one was in the theater that morning My friend got popcorn and I got comfortable When Heath Ledger appeared on the giant screen I got sassy and my friend got uncomfortable For those of you who know me you know I can get very outspoken about my leading men and Heath has always made my heart beat faster Before anyone could say “Ledger” I was making Mmmm Mmmm yummy sounds and saying things like “Mama like oh Mama like”My friend slid deeper into her seat and was like “Rein it in sister”But then Jake Gyllenhaal appeared on the screen and I had never seen him before and I was like “What's up Mr Dimples? Mr Sparkles? Why don't you come on over here with those shiny eyes?”I swear I was worse than a 1940s sailor freshly docked at bayAnd just as my eyes were happily feasting on all of that eye candy in Levi's the weirdest thing happened the Heath character violently grabs the Jake character and they start to have a man on man fuck fest Ain't no other way to describe it folksI remember my hands went numb and I was like WTF? Why are those two hot hetero guys up there doing that instead of down here in this row asking me if I'd like a drink? What is this? I thought we were having a good time up on that mountain together Well they were I wasn't I was surly after that Whenever someone asked me if I'd seen the movie I'd respond with “Yeah I've seen the damn movie”While other people were getting themselves worked up and uoting scripture I was like “Why couldn't they have picked less attractive actors?” I didn't have a problem with them being gay or whatever they were I had a problem with not being able to imagine them with me Let's face it people you go to a romantic movie and part of the appeal is imagining yourself in that situation I wish I had been AWARE of what was going to happen in the movie I felt taken unawaresI also wish I had been one of the readers who had known the rather obscure short story when it came out in 1997 I wasn't an Annie Proulx reader yet but I would become one in 2013 and fall deeply in love with The Shipping News tooIf I had read the story before the movie it would have been a completely different experienceWell anyway now I have I spent last night discovering it and I can't believe it but it's one of the best stories I've ever encountered The writing is stunning just stunning and Ennis and Jack's love story pulls you in immediately Please do not mistake me it is NOT a subtle story The nearly violent interactions between the men in the movie have their basis here in the original story neither man is a shrinking violet when it comes to his love for the other But oh it is a love story It startled me stunned me aroused me and saddened me It is truly one of the best works of short fiction I've ever encountered And this line if you can't fix it you've got to stand itTo me this story isn't about being gay; it's about being in love with someone you can't have
