His arthritic knee is acting up and so is his truck; his ex-wife is at the end of her tether; his mistress is giving him the cold shoulder; and the grinning ghost of his father won't leave him alone. The future looks bleak when Sully's son Peter, a morose college professor, returns, offering Sully a chance to address a lifetime of neglected responsibilities and threatening his carefree existence.Hide synopsis

Written by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Empire Falls. In his slyly funny and moving new novel, the author of The Risk Pool follows the unexpected operation of grace in a deadbeat, upstate New York town--and in the lives of the unluckiest of its citizens. This became a major motion picture starring Paul Newman, Bruce Willis, Melanie Griffith, and Jessica Tandy.

Signed by author, "Newport NH, Oct. 5, 2013" after accepting the Sarah Josepha Hale Award, Richards Free Library Trustees. Back cover significant lower corner crease. Else clean. Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 560 p. Audience: General/trade. Fiction set in upstate New York, in a fictional "deadbeat" town, featuring a finely crafted central character in Sully, who has been "doing the wrong thing triumphantly" for a half century. Sully's big problem, on top of several common ones, is that he sees his son following in his own uninspired footsteps. An early novel by Russo, this work helped to establish him as a writer blending both compassion and wit into story lines of ordinary people in ordinary New York State and New England communities. He would later win the Pulitzer for 2 novels: Empire Falls and Bridge of Sighs. As a recipient of the annual Hale Award, he joins an impressive list of New England-based novelists, poets, historians, and editors, a tradition that began with poet Robert Frost's recognition in 1956. During the 18th century, self-educated Sarah Josepha Hale, a Newport N.H. native, was a mother of five when widowed, and later made her living as a writer, becoming the first woman periodical editor (Godey's Lady's Book).

Next to my childhood home was a rental home. This two-flat had a menagerie of tenets over the course of the twenty years I lived there ? all colorful, all interesting ? some quite scary. My favorite tenants moved in when I was five years old ? their names were Herb and Bones. I loved these guys. They ...
