This was a great find. I really enjoyed reading [a:Richard Ford|7849|Richard Ford|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1334959824p2/7849.jpg]. I had put off reading his novels because I had heard his writing was rather stilted, full of itself. I don't know where I got that information, but I was misinformed. I found him very easy and enjoyable to read. Some authors can be very blatant in their opinions or perspectives. With Ford, I felt the author's perspective came through the actions and words of the protagonist and therefore were much more palatable and integrated with the story.

What I didn't realize when I began reading [b:Independence Day|12374|Independence Day|Richard Ford|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1166501473l/12374._SY75_.jpg|2199385] (duh!) is that this is the second in a trilogy. I would have rather read them in their proper order, however, I have also read some less complimentary reviews of the first novel, so maybe if I had started with the first novel I never would have gotten to [b:Independence Day|12374|Independence Day|Richard Ford|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1166501473l/12374._SY75_.jpg|2199385].

I found the plot of [b:Independence Day|12374|Independence Day|Richard Ford|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1166501473l/12374._SY75_.jpg|2199385] very engaging. The primary characters had real depth, especially the protagonist, Frank Bascombe, and his son. The issues the characters were facing seemed real. There was a relationship between people and place to which I could relate. While I liked Frank, you never felt he was perfect; in fact, he had a lot of blemishes. The story caught Frank during a few days as he broke from the patterns of the life in which he had become comfortable and moved into a new phase of his life that would require of him greater personal commitment and involvement. Even the people in Frank's life notice the change he is going through. It is as if Frank has been stagnant, standing still, and he has found a way to successfully move forward. A story of transformation, but subtle and perhaps not permanent? ( )

This is one of the best books I ever read in my life. I read the Sportswriter and although the writing was exceptional and story engrossing, disliked Frank Bascombe for his shallow detachment. In this novel he is so much more real as he attempts to communicate his troubled son. The setting, in Cooperstown and Oneonta is very familiar to me and dead one accurate. His attempt to relate to his son made me cry. In the midst of an unbelievable tragedy, someone calls him by name, and takes care of him...comforting, caring, for him. This Chirst- figure is his long lost Jewish step brother, Irv, who imparts wisdom of continuity, which finally impels Frank out of his Existence period back into real life. ( )

Der 4. Juli 1988, das ist der Tag, an dem Frank Bascombe alles richtig machen will: seine Freundin besuchen, sich um seinen Sohn kümmern - doch es kommt mal wieder anders. Richard Fords Prosa kennzeichnet atmosphärische Dichte und eine atemberaubende Präzision bei der psychologischen Ausleuchtung seines Helden: Unabhängigkeitstag ist ein literarisches Meisterwerk, ein Meilenstein der Gegenwartsprosa.

Great novel by Richard Ford about a trip he takes with his alienated son

Interesting enough, it was a holiday weekend, an Easter in fact, which delineated this rather regal reading. I read most of this in Indianapolis while working. It was a quiet cafe which I recall as sullen. I am not sure as the reasons for. ( )

In Haddam, summer floats over tree-softened streets like a sweet lotion balm from a careless, langorous god, and the world falls in tune with its own mysterious anthems.
