A landmark new collection of stories from Richard Ford that showcases his brilliance, sensitivity, and trademark wit and candor! In Sorry for Your Trouble, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times-bestselling author Richard Ford enacts a stunning meditation on memory, love and loss. “Displaced” returns us to a young man’s Mississippi adolescence, and to a shocking encounter with a young Irish immigrant who recklessly tries to solace the narrator’s sorrow after his father’s death.  “Driving Up” follows an American woman’s late-in-life journey to Canada to bid good-bye to a lost love now facing the end of this life.  “The Run of Yourself,” a novella, sees a New Orleans lawyer navigating the difficulties of living beyond his Irish wife’s death.  And “Nothing to Declare” follows a man and a woman’s chance re-meeting in the New Orleans French Quarter, after twenty years, and their discovery of what’s left of love for them. Typically rich with Ford’s emotional lucidity and lyrical precision, Sorry for Your Trouble is a memorable collection from one of our greatest writers.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This is America, and Richard Ford is its chronicler. In these superbly wrought tales he catches, with exquisite precision, what Emerson in his scholarly address failed to mention, the irresistible melancholy that is the mark of American life.” Wall Street Journal
“This sparkling collection is drenched in retrospection; characters mull regrets and rancors that have lost their bitterness with time. Ford’s mastery of fiction extends to his gift for interior monologue and human speech.” New York Times Book Review
“Once again, virtuoso Ford deftly sails the seas and storms of consciousness.” Booklist (starred review)
“Powerfully unsettling stories in which men nearing the end of their lives wonder, befuddled, if that’s all there is.” Kirkus Reviews
