Product description


[Russo] casts a warm eye on life in all its knottiness in a masterly work that hits the bullseye. * RTE * Beautifully accomplished * Glasgow Herald * Russo has fashioned tales compact enough to make an immediate impression (and to read in a single sitting), but rich [in] believable characters, graceful plotting and pointed dialogue. * Columbus Dispatch * The four terrific stories in Trajectory tackle themes that are instantly familiar...but Russo's seemingly effortless prose transforms them into something freshly seen. * Daily Mail * Thoughtful and warmhearted, [Russo's] fiction has the engaging quality of tales told by a friend, over drinks, about a person we know in common. And so we lean forward, eager to hear what happened next. * New York Times Book Review * Trajectory functions as a neat introduction to Russo's oeuvre and interests, exploring the constant friction between his thoughtful characters and the brashly confident people they rub up against. And the new story, Milton and Marcus, is worth the cover price alone, Russo finding a rare soulfulness in the life of a down-on-his luck Hollywood screenwriter. * Observer * Another of the author's peerless depictions of small-town life. * Wall Street Journal * Thoughtful, soulful . . . It will abruptly break your heart. That's what Richard Russo does, without pretension or fuss, time and time again. * New York Times * So rich and flavoursome that the temptation is to devour it all at once. * Boston Globe *
