E. Annie Proulx's first novel, Postcards, winner of the 1993 Pen/Faulkner Award for Fiction, tells the mesmerizing tale of Loyal Blood, who misspends a lifetime running from a crime so terrible that it renders him forever incapable of touching a woman. Blood's odyssey begins in 1944 and takes him across the country from his hardscrabble Vermont hill farm to New York, across Ohio, Minnesota, and Montana to British Columbia, on to North Dakota, Wyoming, and New Mexico and ends, today, in California, with Blood homeless and near mad. Along the way, he must live a hundred lives to survive, mining gold, growing beans, hunting fossils and trapping, prospecting for uranium, and ranching. In his absence, disaster befalls his family; greatest among their terrible losses are the hard-won values of endurance and pride that were the legacy of farm people rooted in generations of intimacy with soil, weather, plants, and seasons. Postcards chronicles the lives of the rural and the dispossessed and charts their territory with the historical verisimilitude and writerly prowess of Cather, Dreiser, and Faulkner. It is a new American classic.

The postcards that serve as chapter headings could have been gimmicky, but they weren‘t. This could have been a depressing book, but it wasn‘t. Maybe it is best summed up by this quote from near the end: “His loneliness was not innocent.” 4 ⭐️

OK, 14 lucky littens are going to going to receive #litsylove/#jb mail from Majorca from me in a couple of weeks' time! I'm not saying who you are though so it will be a surprise!

Loyal is #sofaraway from home because of the crime he committed, he doesn't realise his departure causes the breakdowns in his family. #AnglophileApril @Cinfhen @Mdargusch @emilyhaldi @Reviewsbylola

PS thanks to @GripLitGrl for the inspiration!

Cinfhen This book sounds really sad 😪😪 11mo
jenniferw88 @Cinfhen it is a bit, but it's also quite exciting for a UK litten who'll probably never get to the USA due to her health! It taught me a lot about US states and I can still remember plot points even though i read it about 12 years ago now! 11mo
Cinfhen Oh wow!!! That‘s the sign of a great book. 11mo

This is not a book related post, but with so many Littens from other states, I thought there might be some who would want to participate!!

A friend shared this post on Facebook and, especially because this is a local school, I thought it was such a fun idea! Please send a postcard to these kiddos!! #teachersoflitsy

cwarnier I live in Mn, but am I SD this weekend. I will see what I can do for you on MN or SD. 12mo
Astroneman I live in Italy. Can I send you a postcard? 12mo
kstadt929 @cwarnier Awesome! Thank you 😊 12mo
kstadt929 @Astroneman Oh that would be awesome!! It isn‘t for me specifically, but for one of my local teachers. That would be really neat if you wanted to send one!! 😁 12mo

Booksnob Yes thank you @Kaye it‘s such a cool project. I found some people didn‘t put their Litsy name on them. I definitely added to my TBR pile. 2y
Kaye @booksnob Thete are a few that I had to add that don‘t have names. They were extras from other exchanges or just extra postcards I needed to use to fill in the blanks. That‘s why a few dont have details on back. 2y

For the ones I don‘t hear from, your packets will be here once I receive yours. I‘ll have to mail out separate postcards to the others , but will see that they get them.

Thank you.

BookishMe Mine certainly seems to be taking its own time to get there ;(( 2y

I have 27 people waiting on 5. It‘s been 5 weeks , which should be plenty of time to toss a pack of postcards in the mail. If you can‘t get them filled out in time, mail them to me and I‘ll finish them. If you aren‘t able to complete it for any reason, please let me know . They need to be in the mail no later than Saturday. I haven‘t and won‘t release your names because I think that‘s tacky.
Thank you for your understanding.

LibrarianRyan I swear to goodness I'm sending mine. Unfortunately life happens. Hopefully they will be out Saturday. 2y

Crazeedi Can someone explain the postcard thing to me? Looks interesting! 2y
tammysue Getting close Kaye!! 2y
Kaye Well, @Crazeedi ..This is the 3rd one I‘ve done. Everyone buys one postcard for each person in the group, and sends them to me. I divide them all up and make a packet of new postcards for each person so they get one from every player. Our first one had 13, second had 18 , this had 31 , so it‘s taking awhile to get them all in. I‘m keeping fingers crossed that the rest will show this week if possible.I have a list of interested folks for another. 2y
Crazeedi @Kaye sounds fun! Let me know if you do it again and I'll join in! Thanks for enlightening me!😁 2y
Kaye @whatshesreadingnow Yes..very. I know most of the remainders are on their way. Keeping fingers crossed 🤞. I always get worried at the end that I won‘t get them all. 😱😬 2y

Kaye Thanks @ralexist for letting me know. I need to go through the posts and emails to see if people specified a day. I have word from a few , I think a few are en route, so I‘m hoping to hear what the status is . I‘m sure you guys are getting excited to see them. 😊 2y
Kaye @squirrelbrain I have had some of the past people ask to be included in another, plus some new people. I said I‘d give it another try ( round 4) if I had enough people interested. I‘ll be happy to add you to the list. I wanted to wait til this one is wrapped up before starting another. I‘d get really confused 🤪. Each one has grown bigger. First was 12, second 18, this is 31. (edited) 2y
TheBookHippie I can't wait!!! 2y
squirrelbrain Thanks @Kaye - I look forward to it! 😁 2y
Kaye @TheBookHippie Yes, it gets exciting when they all start coming in and adding up. I keep everyones‘ items in the original envelopes to avoid confusion but check when I get them for numbers, Litsy names on the backs. I get excited to send them out when I see them all. This should be a humdinger of a big one. I also ordered extra little doodads for this one plus will do a drawing for a couple book giveaways. It should be lots of fun. ✨✨✨✨✨ 2y
Kaye @squirrelbrain I just counted. I already have 11 so far for the next one. I‘m keeping the names listed so I‘ll tag you guys when this one is winding down . Thanks for your interest. It really is fun. 2y

Kaye Sorry you‘re still having troubles . It‘s been working ok til this morning. Hit a clog again and I couldn‘t post. Hope they get it fixed soon. Getting annoying now. Those should be some really cool postcards. Can‘t wait to see them. 😊. @whatshesreadingnow (edited) 2y
Kaye @Madamereginald No, it‘s totally fine. It‘s happened before. I usually try to check all of them before sending them out just in case . All fixed and ready and waiting. 2y

Dear @Kdgordon88 ,
I received your postcards today. Thank you so much for the extra help with postage expenses and the new book. It sounds right up my alley. And it‘s cool because he‘s from your state ! How about that ?
You guys are all so nice. ♥️

What did I do BL ? ( Before Litsy ).

Dear @Chili
I received your postcards today, and also some extras for me. Thanks so much. It was very nice of you. ♥️

#pcs3.

Chili You are very welcome. 💜🙂 2y
Kaye @chili. Sorry about the other conversation getting deleted. I‘m having trouble getting things to post today and trying to edit the posts. Instead of this one editing, it posted twice. I needed to block out our addresses. 2y

Dear Misty. Thank you for sending your packet of postcards back to me from back on exchange 1. Your card was also pretty. I like cards with glitter ✨. I got some small albums and am adding my Litsy cards to them as I get them so now I can put these in with the eothers. Thanks again. #passportbook. @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Postcard search is coming to a close. I found 2/3 of the cards I need. I also seem to have picked up a couple extras.

MuddyPuddle Flying home from San Francisco tonight (sniff, sniff), then I‘ll get right on it! 2y
UnidragonFrag I'm hoping to find some today and I'll send them right out! 2y
Kaye @MuddyPuddle Sorry your vacation is almost over. Sometimes vacations make it hard to come back to real life. Especially if you go someplace with great weather then come home yo cruddy weather, like we‘ve done before. Will let you know when your postcards arrive here. 😊 2y
Kaye Thank you @UnidragonFrag . Sometimes they are difficult to find. If we didn‘t have that one store here close by, I have no clue where I‘d get mine. Amazon probably. They seem to have just about anything I need. 😊 2y
Chili I will be mailing mine on Monday. 2y
Kaye Thanks @chili. I‘ll holler when they arrive. 😊 2y
HoneyBeesKnees I will finish up this weekend and get them in the mail on Monday😀 2y
Kaye Thank you @HoneyBeesKnees I‘ll let you know when they arrive. 😊 2y
LibrarianRyan Mine are in my purse. I'll get them out next week. 2y
Traci1 I bought the postcards today (I gotta say the guy at B&N looked at me like I was a nutcase when I walked up to the register with 30 of the same postcard.) I'll work on them and hope to get them in the post on Monday. 2y
Kaye Thanks @LibrarianRyan , I‘ll let you know when they arrive. 😊 2y
Kaye @Traci1 That‘s funny . The last time I bought 18, the guy in the store said Have a Safe Trip Home. I live 5 miles from there 😁 2y
GarthRanzz Got mine in the mail today and if tomorrow works out I will be filling them all out. If I don‘t get writer‘s cramp. 😊 2y
Kaye Sounds great @GarthRanzz . I‘ll let you know when they arrive. 2y
UnidragonFrag I ordered some, couldn't find any. But unfortunately, won't arrive until April 30th :( 2y
Kaye That‘s ok, @UnidragonFrag we will hopefully aim for all of them to finish arriving by then. There should be quite a few this week, then I‘ll count up and see how many we are still waiting on by then. I‘m hoping they will all arrive by the very beginning of May if possible. I‘ll keep everyone posted so you guys know when they get here and how many we are waiting on. Thanks for letting me know. (edited) 2y
UnidragonFrag Ok, cool! No problem! 2y

Dear #pcs3 group,
So excited these items arrived. An added item I‘m putting into the parcels. I have to work on them today to finish them up. I didn‘t think I‘d get them at all. I ordered them last week..we had such bad flooding at the local Amazon receiving warehouse that the roof caved in on the building. The P.O. couldn‘t tell me where they were and neither could Amazon. There‘s another item I‘m also waiting on. Same story. I got these today!

Chellebearss I couldn‘t find any around here so I‘ve ordered some from amazon. I should be able to mail mine to you by Tuesday :-) 2y
Kaye Thanks @TheBookHippie . I‘ll holler when they come. @Chellebearss ...yea I know a couple people had to do that in the other 2 groups. I actually ordered mine this time so I‘d have some different pictures. I only have one store here that sells them so I ordered to get new pics this time. 😊 2y

Ingerella I'm still acquiring the postcards. I have 16 so far! Hope to get the rest this weekend because I'll be out at the beach where they sell them. 2y
Kaye Sounds fine @Ingerella. They‘ll surely have them at the beach. 😊. Wish I was at a beach instead of in snow flurries again today. 😡 2y
Chellebearss @Kaye the only store that I found around here was asking too much. Would have cost $30 and then the shipping to the states. Ouch! Amazon to the rescue :-) 2y
Kaye Yep , Amazon has rescued me many times 😊. @Chellebearss 2y
AmberAC Great thanks for letting me know! 2y
Kaye Sure , Amber. Your cards are such a treat. You guys are hilarious out there. Makes me wish I lived in your state. @AmberAC 2y
AmberAC Glad you like them. From a store called Raygun, check them out. They have tshirts that I love. https://www.raygunsite.com 2y
