The Sportswriter Publisher's Summary

Frank Bascombe has a younger girlfriend and a job as a sportswriter. To many men of his age, 38, this would be a cause for optimism, yet Frank feels the pull of his inner despair and especially of his recent losses - his preferred career has ended, his wife has divorced him, and a tragic accident took his elder son. In the course of this Easter weekend, Frank will lose all the remnants of his familiar life, though he will emerge heroic, with spirits soaring.

This is a magnificent novel that propelled Richard Ford into the first rank of American writers.
