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 New York town they all struggled variously to escape.Anyone familiar with Richard Russo'sacclaimed novelswill recognize Gloversville 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 charming, feckless 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), with everyone barely scraping by under a very low horizon.A world elsewhere was the dream his mother instilled in Rick, and strived for herself, and their subsequent adventures and tribulations in achieving that goalbeautifully recounted herewere to prove lifelong, as would Gloversville's fearsome grasp on them both. Fraught with the timelessdynamic of going home again, encompassing hopes and fears and the relentless tides of familial and individual complications, thisstory is arresting, comic, heartbreaking, and truly beautiful, an immediate classic.
