Summary
With "The Sportswriter," in 1985, Richard Ford began a cycle of novels that ten years later--after "Independence Day"--Won both the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award. Now, Frank Bascombe's story resumes, in the fall of 2000, with the presidential election still hanging in the balance and Thanksgiving looming before him with all the perils of a post-nuclear family get-together
