Small town

Oh how I love Annie Proulx's writing style.  Bad Dirt is a collection of short stories mostly based around a small Wyoming town.  Proulx is funnier than I'd expected.  I loved the story about the trucker hauling hay bales or the fad for homemade hot tubs.  Nonetheless, a lot of the stories are still dark with a hard edge to them.  They kind of reminded me of small town living and the characters that inhabit those spaces.  Very enjoyable!
