A visionary account of American life--and the long-awaited sequel to one of the most celebrated novels of the past decade-- Independence Day reveals a man and our country with unflinching comedy and the specter of hope and even permanence, all of which Richard Ford evokes with keen intelligence, perfect emotional pitch, and a voice invested with absolute authority.
