Nearly four years after the publication of Women with Men, Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Ford delivers another masterful work, one that reaffirms whyThe New York Times has called him “one of his generation’s most eloquent voices.”

Only a storyteller as agile and finally serious as Richard Ford could produce an array of stories so rich and formally diverse upon a single grand theme – love, intimacy and their dramatic failures. Ford’sMultitude of Sins evokes, in an unflinching candor, our failure to be faithful, to be sincere, to be empathetic, to be patient, to be honest, to be passionate, ultimately to be loving toward those we desire or merely should care for. As in all his work, the settings are as distinct as Montreal is from New Orleans. Though, with the fiercest intensity here, Ford is again drawn to relations between women and men – amorous liaison in and out and to the sides of marriage. There, his extraordinary stories contend, our entire sense of right and wrong is enacted, put on vivid and unforgettable display.
