'Ford’s sense of place is extraordinary... This is the work of a formidably talented novelist’ -- Newsweek
'Ford’s taut, compelling prose is as piercingly clear as police siren. No other storyteller writes about the alienated and uncommitted with such mastery’ -- Penny Perrick, Sunday Times
'So hard-boiled and tough that it might have been written on the back of a trenchcoat. A grand 'Maltese Falcon’ of a novel’ -- Stanley Elkin
Richard Ford was born in Jackson, Mississippi, in 1944. He has published five novels and two previous collections of stories. His novel, Independence Day was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and, two weeks later, the PEN/Faulkner award for Fiction, the first time the same book has won both prizes.
