BETWEEN THEM: Remembering My Parents

AudioFile Earphones Award

Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Richard Ford’s remembrance of growing up in the 1950s is insightful, enlightening, and emotionally evocative. The memoir offers some insight into the origins of Ford’s storytelling and of Frank Bascombe, protagonist of Ford’s celebrated THE SPORTSWRITER, INDEPENDENCE DAY, THE LAY OF THE LAND, and LET ME BE FRANK WITH YOU.
Listen to a sound clip and read AudioFile’s full review of BETWEEN THEM here.
