Flores En Las Grietas

Richard Ford

This book brings together for the first time Richard Fords essays and memories, in which he reflects over literature and life. There are intimate texts such as the memory of a moment of happiness with his father or of the adolescent phase which he spent in a hotel run by his grandfather after the death of his parent. And there are texts about literature: the meaning of writing the creative process the pleasure of reading the story understood as a genre of audacity and narrative concentration the powerful narrative truth of writers such as Richard Yates or James Salter? an essential book to complete the Fordian canon, to discover his sources of inspiration, the intimate keys of his literary universe and his passion as a reader.
