Talking Volumes: Richard Ford
The Loft Literary Center, Monday, December 1 at 7pm
Talking Volumes, Minnesota's nationally acclaimed regional book club, spotlights current books and their authors in Star Tribune articles, author appearances at Saint Paul's Fitzgerald Theater, and Minnesota Public Radio broadcasts. Talking Volumes is a partnership of the Star Tribune and MPR in collaboration with The Loft Literary Center.

About Let Me Be Frank With You: In his trio of world-acclaimed novels portraying the life of an entire American generation, Richard Ford has imagined one of the most indelible and widely discussed characters in modern literature, Frank Bascombe. Through Bascombe—protean, funny, profane, wise, often inappropriate—we’ve witnessed the aspirations, sorrows, longings, achievements and failings of an American life in the twilight of the twentieth century.

Now, in Let Me Be Frank with You, Ford reinvents Bascombe in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. In four richly luminous narratives, Bascombe (and Ford) attempts to reconcile, interpret and console a world undone by calamity. It is a moving and wondrous and extremely funny odyssey through the America we live in at this moment. Ford is here again working with the maturity and brilliance of a writer at the absolute height of his powers.

Richard Ford is the author of the Bascombe novels, which include The Sportswriter and its sequels, Independence Day—the first novel to win the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award—and The Lay of the Land, as well as the short story collections Rock Springs and A Multitude of Sins, which contain many widely anthologized stories. He lives in Boothbay, Maine, with his wife, Kristina Ford.

Season ticket packages go on sale July 22.

Single show tickets go on sale to the general public in August. Single tickets will be $25.00 for the public and $23.00 for MPR members, members of the Star Tribune Talking Volumes Club and The Loft Literary Center. Call the Minnesota Public Radio box office at 651-290-1200 or visit online at http://fitzgeraldtheater.publicradio.org for more information. (The_Loft_Library)
