FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgThe Lay of the Land (Knopf) is Richard Ford's third novel about Frank Bascomb, his sportswriter-turned-realtor. Does Ford inhabit the character? Does the character inhabit him? Neither, it turns out. Ford explains how Bascomb is just a tool--one for exploring the present and revealing the problems of aging in the "now."
