As the author of The Bridge of Sighs, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Empire Falls, and other novels, Richard Russo is known for the unblinking honesty of his portrayals and the clarity of his writing. Those attributes figure decisively in his memoir about growing up in economically vulnerable upstate New York. His nostalgic recreations of his parents, especially his mother, are leavened by comic stories and generous swaths of local color. A candid look back by a talented writer; easy to recommend. Now in trade paper and NOOK Book.
