Dorothy’s December Recommendation

Elsewhere by Richard Russo

“This is novelist Richard Russo’s new memoir.  Here is a description elsewherefrom the SWAN online catalog: ‘After eight commanding works of fiction, the Pulitzer Prize winner now turns to memoir in a hilarious, moving, and always surprising account of his life, his parents, and the upstate New York town they all struggled variously to escape.’ While you are waiting for this book, read any of his novels.  My favorite is Empire Falls for which Russo won the Pulitzer Prize in 2002.”
