AOT #85: Richard Russo Podcasts Bridge of Sighs
Richard Russo, the best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Empire Falls, Nobody’s Fool, and others, reads from and discusses his critically acclaimed new novel Bridge of Sighs. Bridge of Sighs is classic Russo, coursing with small-town rhythms and the claims of family, yet it is brilliantly enlarged by an expatriate whose motivations and experiences – often contrary, sometimes not – resonate through richly different lives. Here is a town, as well as a world, defined by magnificent and nearly devastating contradictions.
