National Bestseller and a New York Times 2016 Notable Book
In these pages, Richard Russo returns to North Bath, the Rust Belt town first brought to unforgettable life in Nobody's Fool
. Now, ten years later, Doug Raymer has become the chief of police and is tormented by the improbable death of his wife--not to mention his suspicion that he was a failure of a husband. Meanwhile, the irrepressible Sully has come into a small fortune, but is suddenly faced with a VA cardiologist's estimate that he only has a year or two left to live.
As Sully frantically works to keep the bad news from the important people in his life, we are reunited with his son and grandson . . . with Ruth, the married woman with whom he carried on for years . . . and with the hapless Rub Squeers, who worries that he and Sully aren't still
best friends. Filled with humor, heart, and hard-luck characters you can't help but love, Everybody's Fool
is a crowning achievement from one of the great storytellers of our time.
