With all the media attention surrounding Brokeback Mountain, the Ang Lee film based upon the short story by Annie Proulx, Proulx has ceased granting interviews, as of December 9, 2005, according to her website, in relationship to the film. However, she encourages interested parties to consult her online biography, her curriculum vitae, and an “Interview with Annie Proulx” from the Missouri Review (22.2, 1999), available in our online archives.

On her site, Proulx admits, “There is one lie in this interview where I said I had never fallen in love with any of my characters. I think I did fall in love with both Jack and Ennis, or some other strong feeling of connection which has persisted for the 8 years since the story was written.”
