As the January selection of the 2012-2013 Book Review Series, the Friends of the West
Bloomfield Twp Public Library are reviewing “Canada” by Richard Ford on
Wednesday, January 9 at 7 p.m. and again on Friday, January 11 at 10 a.m. in
the Meeting Room of the West Bloomfield Twp Public Library Main Library, Main
Branch, 4600 Walnut Lake Road,
West Bloomfield, MI.
The reviewer for the selection is Sandra Sutherland.
“Pure vocal grace, quiet humor, precise and calm observation.”
(The New Yorker )
“A triumph of voice.... The writing... is spare, but heartbreaking.” (USA Today)
“A magnificent work of Montana gothic that confirms his position as one of the
finest stylists and most humane storytellers in America…Ford has left the
suburbs of New Jersey two thousand miles away and delivered his most elegiac
and profound book.” (Washington Post )
“[R]obust and powerful… tap[s] into something momentous and elemental about the profound moral chaos behind the actions of seemingly responsible people… By depicting tragedies without deep roots in reason or purpose, Mr. Ford has dramatized the frightening discovery of the world’s anarchic heart.” (Wall Street Journal )
There is no charge to attend either program.
