This One is Going to Be Huge in the Fall

In his first novel since winning the 2002 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction for Empire Falls, Richard Russo is ready to take you on another superb story filled with engaging characters, a compelling story line and his unique sense of humor in his newest book, Bridge of Sighs.

I've just about finished an advanced copy of this book and can only say, "Wow." This book, due to be released September 25, 2007 will satisfy your craving for Russo's unparalleled style and substance.

Once again set in an upstate New York, both the town and a majority of the residents have seen better days. With both sweet and bitter nostalgia this novel follows the past and present of one of the town's focal citizens as he prepares for a new phase in his life.

Keep your eye out for this book - and place it on the top of your list for September!
