In all of Russo's books, he describes his characters and the setting so well that you feel like you're in the story.

Richard Russo is unquestionably my favorite living author. His ability to construct a sentence with effortless poetry, subtle wit and striking clarity is unmatched, making his novels a joy to read from beginning to end just for the language. But add to that complex, entirely human characters and a keen sense of small-town life and you have any one of Russo's brilliant novels. Empire Falls, probably the most known and respected of his works, combines the humor of his earlier novels with a deeper sadness and longing to create a rich, satisfying reading experience. The story of Miles Roby, his family and friends will capture your heart.
