Overview

Now a Major Motion Picture starring Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal

Full of prose that makes the reader shiver, Wildlife is a rich and readable story…It leaves a sense of hope, a conviction that life is worth living.–Chicago Sun-Times

When Joe Brinson was sixteen, his father moved the family to Great Falls, Montana, the setting for this harrowing, transfixing novel by the acclaimed author of Rock Springs. Filled with an abiding sense of love and family, and of the forces that test them to the breaking point, Wildlife–first published by Atlantic Monthly Press in 1990 and now reissued as a Grove Press paperback–is a book whose spare poetry and expansive vision established it as an American classic.

"Ford brings the early Hemingway to mind. Not many writers can survive the comparison. Ford can. Wildlife has a look of permanence about it." –Newsweek

"A stylistic grace that goes to the heart of its subject . . . shrewdly focused . . . powerful and haunting." –The Boston Globe

"This intense work confirms Richard Ford as one of the most formidable writers of his generation." –The Baltimore Sun

"Shot through with nuance and minute observation . . . It may even assume the weight of myth." –The New York Times Book Review

"Richard Ford is one of the best writers and Wildlife is his best novel. . . . This is, in all likelihood, the finest novel of coming of age since The Catcher in the Rye." –The Star-Ledger
