From the Publisher:
After eight commanding works of fiction, the Pulitzer Prize winner now turns to memoir in a hilarious, moving, and always surprising account of his life, his parents, and the upstate town they all struggled variously to escape.

Anyone familiar with Richard Russo's fiction will recognize Gloversville, New York, once famous for producing that eponymous product and anything else made of leather. This is where the author grew up, the only son of an aspirant mother and a good-time, second-fiddle father who were born into this close-knit community. But by the time of his childhood in the 1950s, prosperity was inexorably being replaced by poverty and illness (often tannery-related), everyone barely scraping by under a very low horizon. A world elsewhere was the dream his mother instilled in Rick, and strived for for herself, and their subsequent adventures and tribulations?beautifully recounted here?were to prove lifelong, as would Gloversville's fearsome grasp on them both.
Author Bio
Richard Russo
Richard Russo grew up in Gloversville, New York, the small, working-class town that has provided the setting for several of his books. His parents separated when he was small, and he lived with his mother but worked construction jobs with his father during vacations from the University of Arizona, where he received his B.A. He also has a Ph.D., and taught at universities in Illinois and Connecticut, then at Colby College in Maine. He began writing fiction when he realized he would rather write his own novels than analyze other people's and, in 1996, was able to quit teaching to write full time. In addition to novels, Russo has also written movie screenplays. Russo was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for his novel EMPIRE FALLS.
