Frank Bascombe er nu midaldrende og faldet til ro i sin ejendomsmæglervirksomhed. Han har nået en slags optimistisk pragmatisme, nu hvor færre ting kan gå galt, men da hans 2. kone pludselig forlader ham, opdager han, at livet er ligeså ambivalent, usikkert og fuldt af muligheder som altid.

"The Lay of the Land" is I believe the third of Richard Ford's novels involving Frank Bascombe. Frank is now a mid-50's New Jersey realtor, living a satisfying life, despite several setbacks he's had to deal with over the years. Ford makes Bascombe very human, and I enjoyed the spoken and inner dialog as I read the book. In many ways, it's a rather inspiring story of living and dealing with life, despite its inevitable setbacks. The writing is engaging, and while it's not a "feel good" type of book, there's a subtle lesson for all of us in the story regarding staying positive and making the best of the life you're given. ( )

Not as good as the first two, I still really enjoyed this third Frank Bascombe book. It starts slowly, but soon takes off. The narrator has a ton of personality and humor, and is always interjecting Deep Thoughts on life, aging, community, and New Jersey real estate. ( )

Frank Bascombe, real estate manager, aka sportswriter and novelist, is in the prime of his life. He is on what he describes as ""the permanent phase" of his life, the period when life "starts to look like a destination rather than a journey". He is 55, his second wife has left him for her first husband, he has prostate cancer, his daughter is moving from her lesbian phase, to what exactly? His son has a girlfriend and wants a relationship with his father. But Paul, the son is overbearing and, what was it that Frank did not give him? His first wife, Anne, calls and wants to start another relationship, But, do they really love each other? These and other life problems all emerge within three days of this 500 page novel.

I hadn't read previous Frank Bascom tales, and it took me a while to get into this, but I found it strangely compelling. The strange part is that I didn't find Frank all that likable. ( )

I really wanted to like this book with its story of Frank Bascombe as he faces the Permanent Period of his life. I'm not sure it matters that this was the third book in a series: I learned enough about Frank's past to be able to follow the narrative. And I liked Frank...he really was coming at life with full force and taking a battering in the process. I found the ending a little strange and convenient to Frank's evolution. I was reminded of the King's comment to Mozart in the movie Amadeus: There were just too many notes. In this case, it seems like there were just too many words. ( )
