Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Ford talks candidly about his celebrated trilogy of novels and his approach to writing the character of Frank Bascombe over 20-plus years, overthrowing some of his readers' assumptions in the course of the conversation. Symphony Space Artistic Director Isaiah Sheffer interviews Mr. Ford, whose pitch-perfect voice takes us as close as we can get to experiencing another person's inner life (Newsweek). Actor David Strathairn performs the opening chapter of The Lay of the Land at the beginning of the program.
