Inhaltsangabe

In this slyly funny and moving novel, Richard Russo follows the unexpected operation of grace in a deadbeat, upstate New York town, and in the lives of the unluckiest of its citizens. Divorced from his own wife and carrying on halfheartedly with another man's, saddled with a bum knee and friends who make enemies redundant, sixty-year-old Sully now has one new problem to cope with: a long-estranged son who is in imminent danger of following in his father's footsteps. With its sly and uproarious humor and a heart that embraces humanity's follies as well as its triumphs, Nobody's Fool is storytelling at its most generous. Don't miss this great novel of impressive literary finesse shot through with wit and compassion.

Kritikerstimmen

"Russo is a master craftsman....The blue-collar heartache at the center of [his] fiction has the sheen of Dickens but the epic levity of John Irving.... Nobody's Fool is a big, rambunctious novel with endless riffs and unstoppable human hopefulness." ( The Boston Globe)
"...confident, assured novel sweeps the reader up in the daily life of its characters." ( San Francisco Chronicle)
"A delight." ( Library Journal)

Life in a small U.S. town wonderfully narrated

If you are looking for a not-so-fast story about life in a small U.S. town, then this one is for you. It's a heartwarming story about a non-achieving, sometimes hard to put up with yet amiable older gent and all the aging town folks around him. Nicely narrated, too.
