General Question 5
What do you think of Proulx’s inclusion of pop culture references (for example, The Wizard of Oz, That ‘70s Show, the Chili Peppers, Pokemon cards, Nirvana, the Foo Fighters, Tommy Hilfiger)? How might these references affect future readers, say 10 or 15 years from now? Consider her reference to the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? that plays a large and important role in Chapter 16.
