Some brief overview of book
The New York Times calls best-selling author Prather an American Kahlil Gibran. Here Prather helps us to find our spiritual center with this modern-day book of proverbs. Fords short, bittersweet fourth novel details how family strife is natures way and again proves Ford to be a gifted chronicler.
Publishers Weekly d the young man began to seriously think about his future. Although he attended Michigan State University with the vague intention of going into hotel management, Ford soon switched over to literature. After graduation, he married his college sweetheart, Kristina Hensley, but was having trouble settling on a career direction.
He applied for several jobs (including the police and the CIA!) and even started law school. It was only after none of these panned out that he begin to consider writing for a living. On the advice of a former teacher, he applied to graduate school and was accepted into the University of California at Irvine, where he came under the happy, unexpected tutelage of Oakley Hall and E.
L. Doctorow. He began work on his first novel, the story of two drifters whose lives intersect on a desolate island in the Mississippi River.
An excerpt appeared in The Paris Review, and the book was accepted for publication. In 1976, A Piece of My Heart was released to good reviews, but Ford bristled at being pigeonholed by critics as a regional writer. Im a Southerner, God knows, Ford said in an interview with the literary journal Ploughshares, but I always wanted my books to exist outside the limits of so-called Southern writing.
In the early 80s, Fords wife (who holds a Ph. D. in urban planning) was teaching at NYU, and the couple was living in Princeton, New Jersey. Disillusioned with novel writing, Ford took a job with the glossy New York magazine Inside Sports, but in 1982 the magazine folded, leaving him unemployed again.
Tentatively he returned to fiction with the glimmer of a story idea based loosely on his most recent experiences. Several years in the making, The Sportswriter introduced Frank Bascombe, a middle-aged writer from suburban New Jersey who forsakes his promising literary career to pen articles for a glossy New York magazine. Published in 1986, the novel was named one of Time magazines five best books of the year and was nominated for a PENFaulkner Award.
Ford claims that he never intended to write a trilogy around Frank Bascombe. But, in between other literary projects (including an acclaimed 1987 short story collection, Rock Springs), he found himself inexorably drawn back into the life of his melancholic protagonist. In 1995, the superb sequel, Independence Day, won both the PENFaulkner Award and the Pulitzer Prize.
Then, in 2006, Ford concluded the saga with The Lay of the Land, a bittersweet set piece nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award. Although Ford modestly maintained that the only reason he won the Pulitzer Prize was that Philip Roth had not written a novel that year, in fact his angst-ridden suburban Everyman Frank Bascombe ranks alongside Roths Nathan Zuckerman (or, for that matter, John Updikes Rabbit Angstrom) as one of American literatures most unforgettable, richly drawn characters. For a man who stumbled into writing with very little forethought or design, Richard Ford has indeed come far.
