Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a sportswriter, Frank Bascombe makes his living studying people--men, mostly--who live entirely within themselves. This is a condition that Frank himself aspires to. But at thirty-eight, he suffers from incurable dreaminess, occasional pounding of the heart, and the not-too-distant losses of a career, a son, and a marriage. In the course of the Easter week in which Ford's moving novel transpires, Bascombe will end up losing the remnants of his familiar life, though with his spirits soaring.

Synopsis:

At the beginning of his career, Frank Bascombe gives up his chance to become a successful novelist in order to work as a sportswriter. By the author of A Piece of My Heart. Reissue.
