Blessed With Memory: A Review of Richard Ford's Canada --- Benjamin Woodard | Numéro Cinq
Ford has concocted a remarkable, controlled tale from the many themes on which he has based his career. The novel is one that feels, like the yarn Dell shares, meditated upon for years and years, perfected in a way that only comes with age and experience. When Dell cops, “I am blessed with memory,” late in his story, one can’t help but believe the same can be said for his literary creator. --- Ben Woodard
