Episode 5

Richard Ford tells the stories of his parents. It is only mother and son from now on. Later, they talk about where she will live. Under his roof at Princeton?

Pulitzer Prize winning Richard Ford narrates the stories of his parents, taken from a newly published memoir.

It's only mother and son from now on. He moves from college graduate to established novelist and teacher, and she has some advice for him: "Richard, I'm never going to be ecstatic. It's not in my nature. Concentrate on your life. I'll take care of me." Later they talk about where she will live. With him?

Producer Duncan Minshull.
