Annie Proulx is a novelist who has made her mark in American literature time and time again. Her first novel, Postcards, won the Faulkener prize; her second, The Shipping News, won the Pulitzer; and her recent collection of short stories, Close Range, won the first New Yorker Book Prize. In this profile, a mammoth, 18-month-long project, Omnibus follows her across the American West as Proulx researches and writes her new novel. There has never been a documentary that follows the writing of a major, literary novel from its inception to completion.
