These short stories are brief yet deep dives into his characters’ internal lives. Set in places like New Orleans, Chicago, Maine, Paris, and Ireland, these snapshots illuminate the power of old loves and defining friendships, loss and grief, the uncertainties and ambiguities of our lives, the almost-ness of connection. A poignant new collection from a fine writer.— Ben
A landmark new collection of stories from Richard Ford that showcases his brilliance, sensitivity, and trademark wit and candor
In Sorry for Your Trouble, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times-bestselling author Richard Ford enacts a stunning meditation on memory, love and loss.
“Displaced” returns us to a young man’s Mississippi adolescence, and to a shocking encounter with a young Irish immigrant who recklessly tries to solace the narrator’s sorrow after his father’s death. “Driving Up” follows an American woman’s late-in-life journey to Canada to bid good-bye to a lost love now facing the end of this life. “The Run of Yourself,” a novella, sees a New Orleans lawyer navigating the difficulties of living beyond his Irish wife’s death. And “Nothing to Declare” follows a man and a woman’s chance re-meeting in the New Orleans French Quarter, after twenty years, and their discovery of what’s left of love for them.
Typically rich with Ford’s emotional lucidity and lyrical precision, Sorry for Your Trouble is a memorable collection from one of our greatest writers.
