Annie Proulx Gave One of the Best National Book Award Speeches in Recent Memory

Annie recently won the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters at the National Book Award Ceremony. Here's a link to a story about it in Vulture, seems that old Annie, now 82, still has her wits about her and enough energy to give folks a kick. Go Annie.

Here's a quote from the NY Times report of the event, Anne Hathaway presented the award to Annie which must have been an interesting event in itself!

"Oscar winner Anne Hathaway presented a lifetime achievement medal to Annie Proulx and performed an act of anti-name dropping, confiding that she and the author had never met. Hathaway starred in the film adaptation of Proulx's "Brokeback Mountain," playing a character who barely existed in the original story. Hathaway called Proulx an "epic, singular talent" whose fictional creations were vivid to Hathaway, like people she had met.

Proulx was grateful for her award and dire about the times, which she called "Kafkaesque." She lamented tribal politics, "flickering threats of nuclear war," environmental destruction and a shift to what she called "viral direct democracy, cascading over us in a garbage-laden tsunami of raw data."

Still, she noted the longing for old notions of truth and community.

"The happy ending beckons and we keep on hoping for it," she said."
