Beschreibung

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Ford is a leading figure among American writers of the post-World War II generation. His novel The Sportswriter (1986), along with its sequel Independence Day (1995) -- the first novel to win both the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award in the same year -- made Frank Bascombe, Ford's suburban Everyman, as much a part of the American literary landscape as John Updike's Rabbit Angstrom.

This American writer talks extensively about his abiding devotion to language and of his profound belief in the power of nar
