Richard Ford

Listen to Richard Ford

Insightful and empathic, witty and graceful, Richard Ford has proven himself both a master stylist and a master storyteller. Here, discussing Canada and writing with Sean Condon, he is as warm and approachable as his writing.

Born and bred in Deep South Mississippi, now resident in east coast Maine, he is well placed to chronicle the American experience – and now, in Canada, he extends his reach across the border, delving into the world of Americans in exile. Best known for rendering ordinary lives in extraordinary prose, Ford swerves into new territory.
