Richard Ford is one of the few living writers who can say he's written the great American novel. Arguably he's written three of them -- they're known collectively as the Sportswriter trilogy. The second of these books, Independence Day, won the Pulitzer Prize.
Like his other work, his latest novel is sweeping, ambitious and touches on themes of American identity. But it has a very un-American name: it's called Canada.
Richard Ford joined Carol earlier today from a studio in Canada -- Vancouver, Canada -- to discuss his latest novel.
