9780099447085: Wildlife

In the autumn of 1960, Joe Brinson and his parents move to the edge of the Rocky Mountains to cash in on the promise of the American frontier, to seize a future as broad as the sweep of the Montana prairies. But when Joe's father leaves home to fight the forest fires that have raged since the summer, and his mother meets an older man, Joe finds his life changing too suddenly, blazing into unrecognisable pieces like the forests surrounding them.

Review:

‘A fine novel by a fine writer’ -- Salman Rushdie

‘Every sentence Ford writes, illuminates…His prose is strong, clear and satisfying, resonant with the bleak rhythms of unrewarded lives’ -- Sunday Times

‘Ford is a masterful writer’ -- Raymond Carver

‘Ford’s book observes the human animal with friendship, understanding, and an almost clinical detachment’ -- Independent on Sunday

‘This is proper storytelling, lean and taut. And it is real, grown-up life. Ford captures perfectly the loneliness that can only be had in families’ -- New Statesman

About the Author:

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 had won both prizes.
