Russo’s Bridge

I just finished Richard Russo’s Bridge of Sighs this morning. I loved it. Of course, I loved it because it resonated with me. It’s about small town life and discontent, written from  male-female, child-adult perspectives. Russo nails the couple dynamic. He also captures bigotry, race, love, sickness, faithlessness, poverty, affluence, alcoholism, drug addiction and homosexuality without seeming gratuitous. It may be the current great American novel.  http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/24/books/24masl.html
