Description

The landscape of "Women with Men" ranges from the northern plains of Montana to the streets of Paris and the suburbs of Chicago. The tragedies that stalk the characters are unfolded with an indelible wit and clarity. So merciless is Ford's lingering gaze upon human, mostly male, weakness, so understanding his eye for the unravelling threads of human love, that this collection of novellas seems only to broaden the reputation and the following of one of the outstanding writers of our time.

Reviews

'Superb ... Nobody now writing looks more like an American classic' New York Times 'Not only superb, it brings Ford to new territories ... Ford's is the voice of twentieth-century America: funny, human, sad and real. And these stories represent the best of that voice' Irish Times 'Here are three perfect "long" stories, so sinuously entwined and so subtly echoing one another that the whole towers like a great novel' Julie Myerson, Mail on Sunday 'Freighted with inspired insight into the lies men tell themselves. Ford justifies the praise he received for Independence Day. There is no better observer of the modern male now writing' Observer
