A half a world away in Gothenburg, Sweden, there was a Book Fair where I was promoting my book, The Art of Selling Real Estate. I had occasion to run into the Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Richard Ford, whose most recent novel, Canada had just been translated into Swedish. Richard has a large following of avid fans in Sweden; he gave a wonderful interview about his book.
His most famous novel, however, Independence Day, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize, features his character, Frank Bascombe, a New Jersey realtor. This book is one of the most insightful books about the trials and tribulations of someone trying to make a living in our business. It is a timeless must-read!
