Richard Ford won the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award for his modern classic Independence Day. In this first volume of his Frank Bascombe trilogy, Bascombe is a sportswriter attempting to cope with his failed marriage and the death of his son. Unable to establish true connections with people, Bascombe drifts into and out of various relationships, but retains an introspective eye that allows him to transcend life's obstacles.More
