The Bascombe Novels By Richard Ford

There’s one book that has captured me more than any other and it’s called¬†Independence Day by Richard Ford. I don’t know how many times I’ve read it, but every time I’m overjoyed by the rich language and the real characters. Every sentence is crafted to absolute perfection and you really sense Ford’s strong passon for language and storytelling.


Independence Day is not only a movie about aliens


The only book I have read five (or so) times is Independence Day by Richard Ford. It is beautifully written that you just linger on pages and re-read paragrahs not to understand them, but to taste every wonderfully created sentence.  It is truly a book to savour, which I am not alone to think as it got both the Pulitzer prize and the Pen/Faulkner award.
