Summary
The third installment, after The Sportswriter and Independence Day, of "an extraordinary epic." This new novel from Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner award-winner Richard Ford marks the return of Frank Bascombe, one of the most beloved characters in American fiction. The time: The Fall of 2000 with the presidential election on-going and Thanksgiving looming with all its own perils, from the post-nuclear family get-together to explosions that will leave listeners gasping. The place: The Jersey shore, where Frank Bascombe now plies his trade as a realtor. Laugh-out-loud funny, "The lay of the land" is sure to be an instant classic
