Standing on the dock by his New England home, he reels off the list of frequent comparisons. He is fiddling with a fishing rod, cursing loudly as the line whips back and tangles - the fish are long gone. It is a most successful impression of not being Hemingway, yet Ford has undeniably carved himself out as a man's man, and an all-hunting, all-fishing, Harley-riding sort of a writer. His is the male American voice of motels and freeways and love derailed. It is 27 years since he published his first novel, A Piece of My Heart, in Since then, he has written five novels and three collections of short stories, edited both the Granta Book of the American Short Story and the Granta Book of the American Long Story and racked up numerous prizes. The taut, moody character who stares out from the dust-jackets of his books is less doleful in person, his gaze less urgent.
The third novel in Richard Ford's magnificent fantasy series has enough thrills, valour, guts and glory to satisfy any die-hard fan of David Gemmell and Joe Abercrombie. The queen of Steelhaven has grown in strength.
