Richard Ford

Pulitzer-Prize winning American author Richard Ford makes his Cambridge Literary Festival debut appearance with his memoir Between Them. Written with intelligence, precision and humanity, Ford evokes a vivid panorama of mid-twentieth century America and an intimate portrait of family life. Born into the divided American South, Ford has been a candid critic of Trump and US politics and is best known for his Bascombe trilogy of novels. A unique opportunity to spend an hour in the company of one of America’s top contemporary writers.
