I'm in the middle of R. Ford's "The Sportswriter"; long overdue, but what can you do. Anyway, the back-cover copy says it's the story of a "goodhearted man" yada yada. Granted, I'm not at the end of the book yet, but "goodhearted" is not what I'd call Frank Bascombe. I'm not saying I don't like the guy, and whether I like him or not isn't the point anyway. But I just want to know if I'm alone in thinking "Goodhearted is not what I'd call him."
