Quoyle is a hapless, hopeless hack journalist living and working in New York. When his no–good wife is killed in a spectacular road accident, Quoyle heads for the land of his forefathers – the remotest corner of far–flung Newfoundland. With 'the aunt' and his delinquent daughters – Bunny and Sunshine – in tow, Quoyle finds himself part of an unfolding, exhilarating Atlantic drama.
'The Shipping News' is an irresistible comedy of human life and possibility.
