One of the masters of American fiction, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Richard Ford comes to Sydney for an exclusive Sydney Writers’ Festival event.
Ford visits Australia on the heels of the publication of Canada, hailed by John Banville as “an extraordinary, overwhelming book”. With one of the most finely tuned ears in contemporary fiction, Ford explores the big issues of our time with a disarming use of the vernacular.
Born in Jackson, Mississippi in 1944, Richard Ford is the author of six novels and four collections of stories. Independence Day was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, the first time the same book won both prizes.
He talks to Sydney Writers’ Festival Artistic Director, Chip Rolley.
