Reviews
Powerful.... as gripping as it is affecting.... Ford has galvanized his reputation as one of his generation's most eloquent voices." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"An extraordinary epic.... nothing less than the story of the twentieth century itself." --The Times

"Frank Bascombe has earned a place beside Willy Loman and Harry Angstrom in our literary landscape ... with a wry wit and a fin de siècle wisdom that is very much his own." --The New York Times Book Review

"Each flash of magical dialogue, every rumination a wild surprise.... Independence Day is a confirmation of a talent as strong and varied as American fiction has to offer." --The New York Review of Books

"A Babe Ruth of novelists.... One of the finest curators of the great American living museum." --The Washington Post Book World
