Product description

Review

"I loved Richard Russo's Pulitzer-winning Empire Falls, a moving, brilliantly imagined and intensely satisfying novel about the slow death of a small town: Russo's characters are as loveable and as exasperating as family" (Nick Hornby)

"His natural grace as a storyteller is matched by his compassion for his characters" (John Irving)

"Like Anne Tyler, Russo is interested in how people rub along; in kindness and responsibility; in cutting slack without being asked. In the Empire Grill he has created a place so involving that not only can you see and smell it, but you start to feel a bit left out of the gin rummy. Russo makes an enormous job of story-telling look effortless. He is, in all the best senses of the word, a natural" (Sunday Times)

"Richard Russo can write like Edith Wharton leavened with a touch of David Lodge" (Economist)

"Russo's command of his story is unerring... He satisfies every expectation without lapsing into predictability, and the last section of the book explodes with surprises...One of the best novelists around" (New York Times) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Book Description

"Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this is a huge-hearted and wonderful novel by a master storyteller." --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
