about this book

“One of the country’s best writers. . . . No one looks harder at contemporary American life, sees more, or expresses it with such hushed, deliberate care.” —San Francisco Chronicle

Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Ford offers honest, moving, and compassionate portraits of modern existence in the stories “Communist,” Reunion,” “Calling,” “Occidentals,” and “Rock Springs”; excerpts from the novels The Sportswriter, Independence Day, and Piece of My Heart; and, for the first time in book form, the memoir, “My Mother, in Memory.”
