The LA Times has a nice, fairly lengthy article about Annie Proulx. It seems the writer who has become so associated with Wyoming is planning on moving. It also seems that she lives in one helluva cool house.
I also find it interesting how some writers prefer total isolation while others have to be surrounded by people in the middle of a big city. I’m probably more of the isolated writer type, but the problem I have with seclusion is that bookstores, gutair stores, and McDonalds are had to reach.
