Nobody's Foolby Richard Russo
Russo is wickedly funny. Between this book and Straight Man, Russo has become one of my favorite writers. In Nobody's Fool he creates a world I didn't want to leave — even though it takes place in a town that's dying, and is filled with a host of charming losers who seem to fumble through life (including the world's dumbest man and a philanderer that would make a president blush).
Synopses & Reviews
The tie-in to a major new film starring Paul Newman, Bruce Willis and Melanie Griffith - due for release in early 1995. Sully, a ne'er-do-well from North Bath, is having problems; his ex-wife is cracking up, his mistress is giving him the cold shoulder and when his smug, college-educated son arrives things do not improve. A rich and funny story in the tradition of Anne Tyler and Garrison Keillor. A Vintage title.
By the author of "Mohawk" and "The Risk Pool", this comic novel has been made into a film starring Paul Newman, Bruce Willis and Melanie Griffith. Set in small-town America, it tells of a smug, college-educated son's reconciliation with his ne'er-do-well father.
