The incomparable Richard Ford, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the PEN/Faulkner award comes to ILFDublin! Author of the internationally-renowned Frank Bascombe novels, Ford writes with humanity, care and precision about the breakdown of cultural institutions such as marriage, family, and the community. A forthright critic of US politics, he described the recent presidential election as, ‘a dark moment in American history’. His new memoir Between Them is an intimate portrait of his parents and a celebration of family life and love. Don’t miss your chance to hear the quintessential American novelist open up about his most personal work to date, with chair Brendan Barrington, editor of The Dublin Review.
