really liked it

I personally love Richard Russo. I know he is not everyone's taste and sometimes I wonder how I can relate to his stories being as they usually revolve around a middle aged man in upstate NY or PA but I just can get so engrossed in his stories and characters. He's really funny and his characters have such life and color to them. This story revolves around one of the funniest main characters I have ever met, a middle aged English professor who takes absolutely nothing seriously yet somehow causes a stir on the local tv news threatening to kill a duck. It's funnier than it sounds...believe me!
