Richard Ford Wins Princess of Asturias Award for Literature

Madrid - American writer Richard Ford has been granted the 2016 Princess of Asturias Award for Literature, as made public this Wednesday in Oviedo by the Jury responsible for conferring said Award.

“Richard Ford received this award for his attention to detail” explained the President of the jury Dario Villanueva Prieto. “ He is a true contemporary author and has an uncanny ability to connect with his readers.”

After publishing two novels, ‘A Piece of My Heart’ (1976) and ‘The Ultimate Good Luck’ (1981), Richard Ford, who was born in Jackson Mississipi, took a job writing for Inside Sports Magazine. He then decided to write a book about a sportswriter which received public acclaim when it was published in 1986.

‘The Sportswriter’ was followed by ‘Rock Springs’, another highly praised book of short stories. In 1995, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner award for his novel Independence Day.

Ford, who now lives in New Orleans, recently published ‘Canada’, his first stand-alone novel since ‘Wildlife’.

The Princess of Asturias Foundation is a non-profit private institution whose essential aims are to contribute to extolling and promoting those scientific, cultural and humanistic values that form part of the universal heritage of humanity and consolidate the existing links between the Principality of Asturias and the title traditionally held by the heirs to the Crown of Spain.

These international awards are granted in eight categories: Arts, Social Sciences, Communication and Humanities, International Cooperation, Technical and Scientific Research, Literature, Sports, and Concord.
