This handsome and inventive format four individually bound volumes gathered in a slipcase combines the previously unpublished novella Intervention with three shorter works, two of which have not been published in book form. The four tales inInterventionscrackle with Russo s perceptive wit and unwavering compassion for the human condition. In the title novella, self-obsessed realtor Ray must confront his own mortality and doesn t seem especially interested in winning the battle. A surprising revelation about his father and uncle, however, and his realization of an unlikely friendship lead him to believe he just might like to stick around. Horseman explores the complexities of a young professor s marriage and academic life, and The Whore s Child negotiates the not-always-clear line between fact and fiction. The final piece, High and Dry, is Russo s paean to the heyday of his hometown, Gloversville, New York. Each of the four volumes is paired with a small, full-color print of a painting by Kate Russo. Printed in the United States on the finest sustainably harvested papers, the set is as much a joy to hold in the hand as it is to read.Read Less
