The Bascombe Novels
By

Rating
(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) A trilogy of brilliant novels "The Sportswriter," "Independence Day," and "The Lay of the Land" that charts the life and times of one of the most beloved and enduring characters in modern fiction. When we meet Frank Bascombe in "The Sportswriter," his unguarded voice instantly wins us over and pulls us into a life that has been irrevocably changed by the loss of a marriage, a career, a child. We then follow Frank, ever laconic and observant, through "Independence Day "and "The Lay of the Land," witnessing his fortune s rise and his family s fragmentation. With finely honed prose and an eye that captures the most subtle nuances of the human condition all its pathos and beauty and strangeness Ford transforms this ordinary man s life into a riveting, moving parable of life in America today."

Reviews

"With a mastery second to none, Richard Ford has created a character we know as well as our next-door neighbors. Frank Bascombe has earned himself a place beside Willy Loman and Harry Angstrom in our literary landscape, but he has done so with a wry wit and a fin de si�cle wisdom that is very much his own." --The New York Times Book Review
