Diagnosis and Ethics in Richard Ford’s A Multitude of Sins

Abstract : A literary criticism of the book "A Multitude of Sins," by Richard Ford, is presented. The article argues that Ford attempts a social diagnosis of societal ills in the book's short stories through an examination of sex, marital conflict, and sin. The article uses philosopher Søren Kierkegaard's book "Either/Or" to explicate Ford's fiction, and his existentialism in particular.
