Episode 4

Richard Ford narrates the stories of his parents. After the death of father, it's mainly mother and son. But one time he feels compelled to act when she meets with 'Matt Matthews'.

Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Ford tells us the stories of his parents, taken from a newly published memoir.

After the death of father, the family dynamics will change: "I, in fact, felt more fully in charge of myself. A sole partnership with my mother." They are close, yes, but the son must forge his own way ahead.
