Goodbye, Frank Bascombe?

The Washington Post reports that Richard Ford won’t be returning to the fictional mindscape of the New Jersey hero who garnered him a Pulitzer Prize.

Ford has made it plain that a fourth book that would take his protagonist beyond his “Permanent Period” and into his sunset years isn’t in the cards.

“I’ve ruled it out as much as I’ve ruled anything else out. I won’t ever get married again. I’ll always be married to the same girl. And I don’t think I’ll ever write another Frank Bascombe book,” Ford said in an interview at his home overlooking Linekin Bay.
