Review: Let Me Be Frank With You

Let Me Be Frank With You Let Me Be Frank With You by Richard Ford
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In four separate stories Frank Bascombe, older now, takes a philosophical view of his two marriages, his friendships, and his life as a former realtor and resident of the Jersey Shore which is still affected by Hurricane Sandy's desolation. While his wife is a grief counselor for the hurricane's victims at the shore, Frank, now ensconced inland in Haddam, welcomes returning military at the airport and reads to the blind on a local radio station. He has a lot of time to let his thoughts run the spectrum of life's experiences - humor, illness, friendships, and sorrow. Well done.
