Five volumes. Frank Bascombe, complete to date. 'Frank is Ford’s Everyman, a disenchanted, rueful and humorous witness to his country’s faltering resolve at the close of the American century and the opening of a new and newly menacing millennium. … He recognises the essentially contingent and slippery nature of our being here, and the necessity to manoeuvre our way through the world as best we can.' - John Banville. Comprising the first American and English editions of The Sportswriter, both signed by the author, first American editions of Independence Day, also signed by Ford, The Lay of the Land and Let Me Be Frank With You.
