Ever since I read his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel 'Empire Falls', I've been a big fan of Richard Russo. This collection of short stories was no disappointment; bittersweet, insightful stories about flawed and lonely people - told with compassion and eloquence. Loved it.

I enjoyed the title story and the last one, "The Mysteries of Linwood Hart", the best. The middle stories were all very similar in tone and setting and even now are beginning to blur together for me.
