Ford, Richard
The Sportswriter/Independence Day/Lay of the Land/Let Me Be Frank With You
Alfred A. Knopf Inc/Vintage/Ecco, Various, 1986. The ULTIMATE collection of Richard Ford's critically acclaimed best-selling novels featuring his now famous literary chronicler, Frank Bascombe, who is certainly one of the most indelible, provocative, and anticipated characters in modern American literature. This set includes 1) "The Sportswriter" (1986) - the Vintage Contemporary Original and "true" First Edition. 2) "The Sportswriter" (1996) - the Hardcover Edition - the scarcest of his books to find, as this copy has not had its spine sun faded as most copies are. 3) "Independence Day" (1995) - A visionary account of American life - and the long-awaited sequel to one of the most celebrated novels of the decade. Winner of the the Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner Awards. 4) "The Lay of the Land" (2006) - a decade after "Independence Day" Frank Bascombe returns, with a new lease on life (and real estate), more acutely in thrall to life's endless complexities than ever before. 5) "Let Me Be Frank With You" (2014) - the final work that returns Richard Ford to the celebrated fictional landscape that sealed his reputation as an American master: the world of Frank Bascombe." All are First Edition/First Printings, Fine/Near Fine condition and all have been SIGNED by Richard Ford (his name only) on their respective title pages (excepting for the Hardcover copy of "The Sportwriter" which has been signed on the Publisher's tipped-in page!) Shipping via Priority Mail only and shipping charge for the set will be advised (at cost - depending on where it is going). [Attributes: First Edit … [Click Below for Full Description]
