In THE LAY OF THE LAND, his first novel in ten years, Richard Ford reprises his famed
everyman protagonist, Frank Bascombe, whose story began with the best-selling novel THE
SPORTSWRITER in 1985, and continued in the 1995 Pulitzer Prize winner INDEPENDENCE DAY.
In THE LAY OF THE LAND, we discover Bascombe - who "has earned himself a place beside
Willy Loman and Harry Angstrom in our literary landscape," according to the New York Times
Book Review - in the fall of 2000, contending with health, marital, and family issues, while
the presidential election hangs in the balance
