Let Me Be Frank With You

Let Me Be Frank With You, Richard Ford

Another check-in with one of my favourite literary characters, Richard Ford's former novelist, turned sportswriter, turned real estate seller, turned retiree, Frank Bascombe. It's not an extended stay with Frank this time, just four vignettes. While there's something about loss running through them - of a house, of an ex-wife, of an old "friend" - Frank is just a joy to spend time with. Even in this more truncated volume. I hope Ford's not done with Frank just yet.
