Sorry For Your Trouble

Characters. Fans of superb writing especially in short form fiction are those most likely to enjoy the collection by Richard Ford titled, Sorry For Your Trouble, containing nine short stories. The characters in these stories face all sorts of contemporary troubles, and Ford’s spare language captures their predicaments with precision and insight. There’s complexity and subtlety in most sentences, and Ford builds his characters with great care into forms that we recognize and understand. These characters are people we know and at the same time are individuals we have never met. We’ve overheard the dialogue in these stories. We have seen these characters in our community, and yet Ford makes them fresh and offers us wise reflections that apply to our own lives.
