Description

Richard Russo's slyly funny and moving novel follows the unexpected operation of grace in a deadbeat town in upstate New York—and in the life of one of its unluckiest citizens, Sully, who has been doing the wrong thing triumphantly for fifty years.

Divorced from his own wife and carrying on halfheartedly with another man's, saddled with a bum knee and friends who make enemies redundant, Sully now has one new problem to cope with: a long-estranged son who is in imminent danger of following in his father's footsteps. With its sly and uproarious humor and a heart that embraces humanity's follies as well as its triumphs, Nobody's Fool is storytelling at its most generous.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 11, 1994 – Set in the economically desperate ex-resort town of North Bath, N.Y., Russo's novel displays his characteristic verbal panache and biting wit.

Customer Reviews

This is my favorite novel.

I can't say enough about this book. Russo has created this magnificent menagerie of colorful characters. Whether or not any place like North Bath could possibly ever exist I often ponder. It is sentimental and warm, but is a fine study of human frailty and mortality. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
