On St Patrick's Day in New Orleans, a man and woman meet again in a bar for the first time in twenty-five years while the parade passes by. A group of friends, no longer young, gather to mourn the death of one of their number. Two teenage boys sit in a drive-in, the air thick with the scent of gin and popcorn, a kiss hanging between them in the dark.
A visionary collection of luminous landscapes, of great moments in small lives, of the people we carry with us long after they are gone, Sorry For Your Trouble reconfirms Richard Ford as the master of contemporary American fiction.
