‘Brokeback Mountain’ Author: Enough With the Pornographic Fan Fiction, Already!

Cornelia Hediger's 02.15.08 (2008)

If you, like many, were disappointed that the sex scenes in Brokeback Mountain weren't hotter, and then you, like some, set out to right this deplorable wrong by drafting your own graphic, boner-popping fan fiction, Brokeback author Annie Proulx has but one simple request: Please don't mail it to her. "There are countless people out there who think the story is open range to explore their fantasies and to correct what they see as an unbearably disappointing story," she tells The Wall Street Journal. "They constantly send ghastly manuscripts and pornish rewrites of the story to me, expecting me to reply with praise and applause for 'fixing' the story. They certainly don't get the message that if you can't fix it, you've got to stand it."
