My first Richard Russo and I loved it. The dialog between Sully and Carl Roebuck is hysterical, it reminds me of how boys spoke to each other when I was in junior high. Sully's commitment issues whether it is jobs friends , or family keep him from getting ahead in life. Nobody's fool follows five (non-consecutive) days of Sully's life, we get to see the havoc he causes in the lives of others starting with his landlady Miss Beryl and ending with his son Peter. I highly recommend this book
