Character Study

foolIf a leisurely paced story with artfully drawn characters and wry humor rocks your summer world, then you will welcome Richard Russo’s “Everybody’s Fool.” In this sequel to ”Nobody’s Fool”, Russo checks in on the residents of  old North Bath,  “a beat-up cast of  broke, overweight, adulterous, dissolute, and philosophical citizens of a ruined resort town, living out their luckless lives between a bar known as the Horse and a diner called Hattie’s Lunch.”   Never mind the plot elements.  This is about character, locale, and the human condition—in short, classic Russo.
