    His single volume of stories has established him as a master of the genre. In Frank Bascombe, Ford has created one of the most complex and memorable characters of our time, and the novel itself is a nuanced, often hilarious portrait of contemporary American life. The following interview took place on a warm breezy July day in a large seaside house Ford sometimes rents outside of Jamestown, Rhode Island. Dressed in khakis and loose blue shirt, Ford seemed relaxed as he enjoyed the beautiful weather on the large veranda surrounding the house, where the interview began. We soon moved indoors, where the breeze from the open windows kept us pleasantly cool. He answered questions slowly and thoughtfully but without any evident selfconsciousness about word choices. Ford took obvious pleasure in his rented house, which had a view across high grass to the sea though he warned of deer ticks and the danger of Lyme disease. Later he said he was thinking of offering to download the property, and that one of his greatest regrets was selling his house in Mississippi. Frank Bascombe the real estate agent did not seem far away. Is there any one aspect of fiction that is particularly central to you? One of the ways sentences can surprise their maker, please their reader, and uncover something new is that they get to the sense they make by other than ordinary logical means. But when I started trying to write, inventing characters was sort of hard for me. Forster and Henry James and Percy Lubbock, who all talked about characters that were, in the first place, already written—and mostly written under the influence of nineteenth-century ideas of what human character was. Character seemed to me, therefore, a rather fixed quotient.

    Originally from Michigan, Arthur attended Harvard but when he could no longer afford it, begged for a scholarship. His professors refused to help him because of his reactionary political views.

    He left Harvard and moved to Elmira, New York and joined a group of like-minded anti-unionists who persuaded him to drive and leave a car bomb behind a union building in Detroit. The bomb exploded and killed a union leader, so Arthur fled to Canada as a fugitive. Now, years later, two men from Detroit arrived to confront Arthur about his crime.

    Jepps and Crosley seemed not to have a real plan, but Arthur feared his concealment had come to an end. Arthur then drove Dell in the blizzard to the shack on his property and murdered Jepps and Crosley while Dell waited in the car.

    Although not in the shack when Arthur shot them, Dell saw the crime but could not hear it, and the soundless pantomime-like violence of the crime terrified him.

    Dell helped Charley and another man bury the bodies in the fields where the Americans came to shoot geese, and ironically noted that if Jepps and Crosley had lived, they would be hunting on that same spot the next day. Florence then arranged for Dell to take a bus to Winnipeg to live with her son Roland. In Winnipeg, he attended high school, graduated, went to college, became a naturalized Canadian citizen, married and moved to Windsor where he now teaches English at a high school.

    After moving to Winnipeg, he eventually learned that his mother had committed suicide while in prison and that his sister Berner is now dying of cancer. He visits her in the Twin Cities in Minnesota. She has lived an unsettled life, but their bittersweet reunion leaves Dell with a small sense of resolution.

    Berner dies and the whereabouts or outcome of Bev, Arthur, Charley and the others remain unknown to him. Dell tells no one, except his wife Clare, about the murders of the two Americans, and believes that on some strange cosmic level that he will have to pay for his involvement in the crime of Arthur Remlinger.

    I think of them as changeable, provisional, unpredictable, decidedly unwhole. I can change them at will, and do. But this is the development of character, in my view; not the setting out of something fixed, which is how I thought of them when I was beginning.

    Maybe this view deviates from the conventional view of character.

    Of course not, right? And based on them we can purport to have characters—invent or allege character, in a sense.

    And sometimes histories predict what people will do. Though often not.

    But character is just one of those human pseudoessences that is often used detrimentally. Certainly a lot of modern fiction derives its drama from the conflict between assumed character and some specific action that deviates from it.

    I knew you were going to be here, and I knew we would have dinner.


    But what? And she says I have her say , But nothing. Based on how the scene felt I completely switched the dynamics. What happens next is that he—not she—tries his best to get out of their relationship as quickly and smoothly as possible. Which, for a couple of hundred pages, he does.

    But have you ever had to call somebody on the phone, somebody you wanted to get rid of, only you end up doing nothing but getting yourself in more deeply? But then we may not do it that way the next time.

    Then I think to myself, Well, start.
