In these ten stories, Ford mines literary gold from the wind-scrubbed landscape of the American West - and from the guarded hopes and gnawing loneliness of the people who live there. A refugee from justice driving across Wyoming with his daughter, an unhappy girlfriend and a stolen Mercedes; a boy watching his family dissolve in a night of tragicomic violence; two men and a woman swapping hard-luck stories in a frontier bar as they try to sweeten their luck. "Rock Springs" is a masterpiece of taut narration, cleanly chiselled prose, and empathy so generous that it feels like a kind of grace.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Stunning ... one of the most compelling and eloquent story tellers of his generation' New York Times 'A collection of stunning impact which marks Ford's arrival at the pinnacle of his craft' Sunday Times 'A marvellous book of short stories ... Rock Springs confirms Ford's place among our finest writers' The Times 'These are beautifully imagined and crafted stories. By turns heart-rending and wickedly funny - and just plain wicked. Ford is a born storyteller with an inimitable lyric voice - and Rock Springs is the very poetry of realism' Joyce Carol Oates
