About the Book

Everybody's Fool

In these pages, Richard Russo to North Bath, the Rust Belt town first brought to unforgettable life in NOBODY'S FOOL. Now, 10 years later, Doug Raymer has become the chief of police and is tormented by the improbable death of his wife --- not to mention his suspicion that he was a failure of a husband. Meanwhile, the irrepressible Sully has come into a small fortune, but is suddenly faced with a VA cardiologist’s estimate that he only has a year or two left to live.

As Sully frantically works to keep the bad news from the important people in his life, we are reunited with his son and grandson...with Ruth, the married woman with whom he carried on for years...and with the hapless Rub Squeers, who worries that he and Sully aren’t still best friends.

Filled with humor, heart and hard-luck characters you can’t help but love, EVERYBODY'S FOOL is a crowning achievement from one of the great storytellers of our time.
