THAT OLD ACE IN THE HOLE

That Old Ace In The Hole - Annie Proulx A novel set largely in the Texas/Oklahoma panhandle, this is another winner from Proulx. Despite what feels like a slightly rushed "Hollywood" ending, this is classic stuff; sharply etched characters set in relief against a wide-open, largely inhospitable landscape.So many of Proulx's characters struggle with change, and [book: That Old Ace in the Hole] is no exception.She manages to stuff this book with an interesting history of the Texas Panhandle without bogging down the plot, and hints at the challenges soon to face this region.
