Vintage Ford (Vintage Readers)by Richard Ford
Synopses & Reviews
Vintage Readers are a perfect introduction to some of the great modern writers presented in attractive, accessible paperback editions.
“One of the countrys best writers. . . . No one looks harder at contemporary American life, sees more, or expresses it with such hushed, deliberate care.” —San Francisco Chronicle
An accomplished practitioner of the short story and the "Babe Ruth of novelists," (Washington Post Book World) Richard Ford is the first writer to receive both the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award for a single book, his 1995 novel Independence Day.
Vintage Ford includes an excerpt from that novel, along with the stories “Communist,” and “Rock Springs” from his collection Rock Springs; “Reunion,” and “Calling,” from A Multitude of Sins, which won him the 2001 PEN/Malamud Award; “The Womanizer,” from Women with Men.
Also included, for the first time in book form, the memoir, “My Mother, in Memory.”
Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Ford offers honest, moving, and compassionate portraits of modern existence in the stories "Communist," "Reunion," "Calling," "Occidentals," and "Rock Springs"; excerpts from The Sportswriter, Independence Day, and "Piece of My Heart"; and, for the first time in book form, the memoir "My Mother, in a Memory."
