Read in October, 2006

1st intro to Richard Russo, recommended by bookclub. Empire Falls was full of wonderful story-telling, covering an impressive number of timely topics in America. It was a multi-stranded, multi-generational tale about coming of age, coming to terms, getting a grip, grieving, facing up, fessing up and getting on with life. I have since read everything Russo has written, and will continue to do so.
