Richard Ford has won the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/ Faulkner Award so will this novel live up to his others?

To Order Use Amazon Search Box
CANADA by Ford will be released May 22nd and is said to be a classic... that may be a stretch.

The premise focuses on a young man, Dell Parsons whose parents rob a bank and are incarcerated for life. Dell is taken in by a  family friend who spirts him across the Canadian border and leaves him to restablish his life in Saskatchewan.

An American befriends Dell and he is soon under the influence of a man whose cool reserve masks a dark and violent personna...and so it goes.

A classic? That remains to be seen..A good read? Yes and No...

Author Richard Ford
Richard Ford was awarded the Pulitzer and PEN/Faulkner for Independence Day, the first novel to win both prizes. He currently resides in  Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
