Join the Conversation with Richard Ford and WSHU Public Radio as he will discuss his New York Times bestselling novel CANADA. The event takes places February 13th at the Fairfield Theater Company. Ford will be interviewed by Roxanne Coady, owner of R.J. Julia Booksellers in Madison, CT. “First, I’ll tell about the robbery our parents committed. Then the murders, which happened later.” So begins CANADA, the unforgettable story of Dell Parsons, a young man forced by catastrophic circumstances to reconcile himself to a world rendered unrecognizable. Spirited across the Montana border into Saskatchewan and taken in by an enigmatic man whose own past exists on the other side of the border, Dell struggles to understand what his future can be as he comes to terms with the violence simmering below the surface in his new life. Ford’s brilliant novel, his first in nearly six years, is rich with emotional clarity, lyrical precision, and an acute sense of the grandeur of living.
Richard Ford is also the author of the the Bascombe novels, The Sportswriter, and it’s squeals, as well as Independence Day, which is noted for A Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner award.
