Richard Ford's parents were not practised self-explainers or confiders. He has therefore investigated their lives - and his - from anecdote, history and conjecture. Ford's mother, a dark-eyed Arkansas beauty whose education was cut short by her colourful itinerant parents, fell in love with Ford's first-generation Irish father at only 17.

Rezensionen
"Affection and insightful...deep, attentive...In this slim beauty of a memoir, [Ford] has given us--the same way he has given us many times in his fiction--a remarkable story about two unremarkable people we would have never known, but for him." Cheryl Strayed, New York Times Book Review
