Richard Ford

Interview

Friday, August 10, 2007

He’s not the type of novelist who cranks out a new book every year. Ideas marinate in Richard Ford’s mind for years –- sometimes 50 years -- before they surface in his stories. Ford spent so much time gathering material and reworking the manuscript of his latest novel, The Lay of the Land, he kept the pages in his freezer for safekeeping. He talks with Kurt about the challenges of aging a character in real time.
