Synopsis:

As a sportswriter, Frank Bascombe makes his living studying people--men, mostly--who live entirely within themselves. This is a condition that Frank himself aspires to. But at thirty-eight, he suffers from incurable dreaminess, occasional pounding of the heart, and the not-too-distant losses of a career, a son, and a marriage. In the course of the Easter week in which Ford's moving novel transpires, Bascombe will end up losing the remnants of his familiar life, though with his spirits soaring.


Review:

"At the time, 'The Sportswriter' was an entertaining CAT scan of the shellshocked American Psyche. It remains so today."

Charles Johnson, New York Times Book Review, 06/18/1995
