Editorial reviews


Ford’s genius at capturing human frailty and its pitiful disguises burns through this novel.

A.V. Club : Canada (June 11, 2012)

Canada is a survivor’s story. Each sentence is an acceptance of the turns Dell has taken since the day Bev Parsons left the house with his gun. It’s a chronicle of how to live, constructed around the opposite choice.

“Canada” is a tale of what happens when we cross certain lines and can never go back. It is an examination of the redemptive power of articulated memory, and it is a masterwork by one of our finest writers working at the top of his form.
