Very different from The Shipping News, That Old Ace in the Hole is an entertaining story of a few months in a young man's life, along with a broad look at the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles - which regions don't have much definition for most of us other than as map appendage shapes. Plenty of great characters in this book, many old cowboy tales, and not a wrong note anywhere. A. Proulx proves again her story telling genius.
