Richard Ford with Francine Prose
From American master Richard Ford, Between Them: Remembering My Parents, a memoir: his first work of nonfiction, a stirring narrative of memory and parental love.
How is it that we come to consider our parents as people with rich and intense lives that include but also exclude us? Richard Fords parentsEdna, a feisty, pretty Catholic-school girl with a difficult past; and Parker, a sweet-natured, soft-spoken traveling salesmanwere rural Arkansans born at the turn of the twentieth century. Married in 1928, they lived alone together on the road, traveling throughout the South. Eventually they had one child, born late, in 1944.
In conversation with Francine Prose whose most recent book is "Mister Monkey".
