Richard Ford wins Princess of Asturias Award for Literature American writer Richard Ford was awarded the Princess of Asturias Literature award in Oviedo on Wednesday. “Richard Ford received this award for his attention to detail” explained the President of the jury Dario Villanueva Prieto. “He is a true contemporary author and has an uncanny ability to connect with his readers.”
Richard Ford returns with four deftly linked Christmas stories narrated by the iconic Frank Bascombe.
Now sixty-eight, Frank resides again in the New Jersey suburb of Haddam, and has thrived seemingly but not utterly amidst the devastations of Hurricane Sandy. The desolations of Sandy, which left countless lives unmoored, are the perfect backdrop for Ford and Bascombe.
With a flawless comedic sensibility and unblinking intelligence, these stories range over the full complement of universal subjects: ageing, race, loss, faith, marriage, the real estate debacle the tumult of the world we live in.
