books: Richard Ford’s dispassionate adultery misses his peak

far from his best

Jan 01, 2011 by skierpage

★★☆☆☆ Richard Ford‘s short story The Womanizer in book 40 of the Granta literary magazine knocked me out, perhaps my favorite modern short story until The God of War came along , so I got this book. Alas no story in the collection comes close, they’re all variations on his lesser The Shore in Granta 50: adulterous man in a cool relationship doesn’t recognize how bad he is.
