    Empire Falls, eine Kleinstadt in Maine: Seit über zwanzig Jahren arbeitet Miles Roby im örtlichen Diner. Hier versammelt sich die ganze Stadt, vom Fitnessstudiobesitzer bis zum Schuldirektor. Miles selbst hat das College abgebrochen, ist geschieden und lebt in einer winzigen Wohnung über dem Restaurant. Und während er sein Bestes gibt, seiner Tochter dabei zu helfen, die Highschool zu überstehen, seinen trinkfreudigen Vater zu bändigen und dem Job im Diner gerecht zu werden, bleibt nicht viel Raum für das, was er sich vom Leben erhofft hat.

    Divorced from his own wife and carrying on halfheartedly with another man's, saddled with a bum knee and friends who make enemies redundant, 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.

    Dexter County, Maine, and specifically the town of Empire Falls, has seen better days, and for decades, in fact, only a succession from bad to worse. One by one, its logging and textile enterprises have gone belly-up, and the once vast holdings of the Whiting clan (presided over by the last scion’s widow) now mostly amount to decrepit real estate. The working classes, meanwhile, continue to eke out whatever meager promise isn’t already boarded up. Miles Roby gazes over this ruined kingdom from the Empire Grill, an opportunity of his youth that has become the albatross of his life.

    Russo's protagonist is William Henry Devereaux, Jr., the reluctant chairman of the English department of a badly underfunded college in the Pennsylvania rust belt. In the course of a single week, Devereaux will have his nose mangled by an angry colleague, imagine his wife is having an affair with his dean, wonder if a curvaceous adjunct is trying to seduce him with peach pits, and threaten to execute a goose on local television.

    Russo's characters in these four expansive stories bear little similarity to the blue-collar citizens we're familiar with from many of his novels. In "Horseman", a professor confronts a young plagiarist as well as her own weaknesses as the Thanksgiving holiday looms closer and closer: "And after that, who knew?" In "Intervention", a realtor facing an ominous medical prognosis finds himself in his father's shadow while he presses forward - or not.

    Anyone familiar with Richard Russo's acclaimed novels will recognize Gloversville, once famous for producing that eponymous product and anything else made of leather. This is where the author grew up, the only son of an aspirant mother and a charming, feckless father who were born into this close-knit community. But by the time of his childhood in the 1950s, prosperity was inexorably being replaced by poverty and illness (often tannery-related), with everyone barely scraping by under a very low horizon.

    William Henry Devereaux Jr. er professor og modvillig bestyrer af engelskinstituttet, ved et mindre universitet i Pennsylvania. Hans modvillighed skyldes, dels hans karakter - han er den fødte anarkist - dels den kendsgerning, at hans kolleger på instituttet stort set alle er i krig med hinanden og også med ham.I løbet af en enkelt uge går Devereaux’ tilværelse amok: Han får sin næse skamferet af en vred kollega, han forestiller sig, at hans kone har en affære med dekanen, en yngre kollega forsøger at forføre ham med en fersken, og han truer på tv med at henrette en af universitetsparkens gæs dag-ligt, indtil ledelsen giver ham et acceptabelt budget. Alt dette mens han prøver at forlige sig med sin skørtejagende og fraværende far, sin datters pludselige trang til skilsmisse og det foruroligende svigt af nogle vitale kropsfunktioner.

    A cynical Hollywood moviemaker confronts his dead wife’s lover and abruptly realizes the depth of his own passion. As his parents’ marriage disintegrates, a precocious fifth-grader distracts himself with meditations on baseball, spaghetti, and his place in the universe. And in the title story, an elderly nun enters a college creative writing class and plays havoc with its tidy notions of fact and fiction. The Whore’s Child is further proof that Russo is one of the finest writers we have.
