I absolutely loved this book! Russo is one of my favorite authors. I can't wait to see how the movie version turns out.

Just received this in the mail from scarlett1968. Thanks for the Swap, can't wait to read this.
I fell in love with Russo's writing when I read "Straight Man" during my Honeymoon last year and had heard "Empire Falls" was not as good and was a little depressing. So, I waited almost a year to start reading it. I really enjoyed it and am glad I waited so I wouldn't expect another "Straight Man." Empire Falls was an excellent book, not as light as "Straight Man," but Russo has yet again, developed complex characters with a great sense of humor who go through hard time, have difficult relationships and get into odd situations and trouble. There is always this hard to reach/absent and difficult father depicted in Russo's work and I have wondered what Russo's own father was like. If he wrote an autobiography I would definitely read it but would hope, for his sake, his life hasn't been as crazy as those he depicts in his books.
I am sure I will be dispointed by the HBO mini-series but I will watch it. Can someone really play the Silver Fox as he was written? How can someone convey all those Bitchy thoughts of Janines without dominating the scenes she's in? And, really, can Paul Newman really play the sleazy, devalish, yet likable Max? We will see.
