Ford Rediscovered

As I have mentioned before, The Fifth Queen by Ford Madox Ford is one of my favorite Tudor novels. Stephanie Mann discusses its re-release.
The English author Ford Madox Ford died on June 26, 1939. He is best known for his novel, The Good Soldier and The Fifth Queen, a historical novel about Katherine Howard, Henry VIII's fifth wife, whom he had beheaded for infidelity. He became Catholic when a teenager. Ford worked with Joseph Conrad on several works (The Shifting of the Fire, for example), and collaborated with other authors as he edited the English Review.
