  • "Brokeback Mountain" is a short story by American author Annie Proulx. It was originally published in The New Yorker on October 13, 1997. The New Yorker won the National Magazine Award for Fiction for its publication of "Brokeback Mountain" in 1998. Proulx won an O. Henry Award prize for her story in 1998. The story was published in a slightly expanded version in Proulx's 1999 collection of short stories, Close Range: Wyoming Stories. This collection was named a finalist for the 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Screenwriters Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana adapted the story for a film of the same name, released in 2005. At that time, the short story and the screenplay were published together, along with essays by Proulx and the screenwriters, as Brokeback Mountain: Story to Screenplay. The story was also published separately in book form. This work has also been adapted as an opera by the same name, composed by Charles Wuorinen with a libretto in English by Proulx. It premiered at the Teatro Real in Madrid on January 28, 2014.
