    Richard Ford

    The Pulitzer-Prize winner reads from his new novel Canada - a magisterial coming-of-age story and talks about the rootless protagonists that populate his books, and typify the fragility of human experience.

    American writer Richard Ford is an internationally lauded author of novels and short stories. He is the author of the Bascombe novels including The Sportswriter; The Lay of the Land and Independence Day, which received the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN Faulkner Award. He has also written a screenplay, non-fiction works and short story collections such as Rock Springs and A Multitude of Sins.
