READING: Richard Russo's new novel takes place in the decaying American town of North Bath over the course of a very busy weekend, ten years after the events of Nobody's Fool. Donald 'Sully' Sullivan is trying to ignore his cardiologist's estimate that he has only a year or two left. Ruth, his long-time lover, is increasingly distracted by her former son-in-law, fresh out of prison and intent on making trouble. Police chief Doug Raymer is tormented by the improbable death of his wife, while local wiseguy Carl Roebuck might finally be running out of luck. Filled with humour, 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.

READING: Everybody's Fool by Richard Russo | Summary & Analysis Preview: Everybody’s Fool, a novel by Richard Russo, is set in the fictional town of North Bath in upstate New York. There, over the course of one weekend, a crew of local eccentrics juggle long-standing grudges, acute crises, and surreal weather events to the best of their limited abilities. Along the way, readers learn about their troubled pasts. At Hilldale Cemetery, Douglas Raymer, chief of police, arrives late for the interment of a local judge. The service is long, and between the heat and his emotional distress, Raymer’s feeling poorly. The setting is stirring up feelings about his late wife, Becka, who died in a freak accident the previous year. Raymer carries an object in his pocket: a garage-door opener that was found in Becka’s car. He thinks he can use it to track down the mystery man Becka had been seeing behind his back before she died.

READING: ‘Een stijlvol memoir over een koppige moeder. Meelijwekkend en grappig, emotioneel ondoorgrondelijk en sterk verwoord.’ – Publishers Weekly ‘Bevrijding is altijd de beloning in een verhaal van Russo. Nergens zien we dat duidelijker dan in Ergens anders, een dapper boek waarin de auteur verlies ombuigt in voordeel, lijden in wijsheid, en een gebroken moeder in een muze.’ – The Washington Post ‘Russo houdt krankzinnige anekdotes en een diepe sympathie voor menselijk falen deskundig in evenwicht.’ – People ‘Het is mogelijk een bevestiging voor Russo en zijn vrouw dat hun huwelijk ruim drie decennia van enorme spanning van zijn moeder heeft overleefd en dat hij daarbij nog in staat was om acht voortreffelijke romans te produceren. En nu, uit dit alles, dit even voortreffelijk memoir.’ – Chicago Sun Times ‘Opmerkelijk liefdevol en met humor geschreven.’ **** - de Volkskrant ‘Russo beschrijft het allemaal met een perfecte mengeling van laconieke, geamuseerde verbazing en stille wanhoop. [...] Ergens anders is geschreven in het soepele proza van een meesterverteller.’ **** - Het Parool ‘Russo vertelt over zijn moeder alsof hij naast je zit aan de bar: intiem, meeslepend en hartbrekend’ - LINDA ‘Russo bewijst in zijn “memoir” misschien nog wel meer dan in zijn vorige, succesvolle, romans zijn schrijverschap. [...] Ergens anders is een intieme liefdesbetuiging.’ – Brabants Dagblad/Provinciale Zeeuwse Courant ‘De Pulitzerprijs-winnaar beschrijft in dansende taal vol humor hoe zijn moeder zijn leven domineerde. [...] Een prachtboek.’ **** - Dagblad van het Noorden ‘Roerende overpeinzingen vol schuldbesef.’ – NRC Handelsblad ‘Met een subtiele mengeling van mededogen en ironie laat Russo zien hoe zijn moeder de schijn van onafhankelijkheid probeert op te houden.’ – Trouw ‘Liefhebbers van Russo leren zijn werk dankzij deze autobiografische herinnering beter begrijpen en nog meer waarderen.’ – VPRO Gids

READING: Louis Charles Lynch, bijnaam ‘Lucy’, woont al zijn hele leven in Thomaston, New York. Hij is veertig jaar getrouwd met Sarah en hun zoon is inmiddels een volwassen man die op het punt staat het familiebedrijf over te nemen. Lucy is een dromer en een echte optimist, een karaktereigenschap die hij van zijn vader heeft geërfd. Zijn moeder, die nog steeds volop ontembaar in leven is, is de drijvende kracht achter zijn bestaan. Dankzij haar scherpe intelligentie, gecombineerd met het optimisme van de Lynches, heeft de familie zich ontworsteld aan haar lage sociale status. Nu bereiden Lucy en Sarah zich voor op hun – eerste en enige – reis naar Italië, waar Lucy’s oudste vriend Noonan woont. Noonan verkoos, in tegenstelling tot Lucy, de vrijheid boven het beperkte, kleinsteedse milieu van Thomaston en is inmiddels een beroemd kunstenaar. Ter voorbereiding op hun reis besluit Lucy zijn geschiedenis toe te vertrouwen aan zijn dagboeken, in de hoop daarmee het mysterie van zijn en Sarah’s vriendschap met Noonan te ontrafelen. In Brug der zuchten wisselen de geschiedenis van Lucy en die van Noonan elkaar af in een gestaag crescendo dat voortdurend verrast.

READING: There is a body in a gazebo, and the chief suspect is not long for this world Small-town lawyer and private detective Sam McCain is enjoying a cocktail party, dancing with a lovelier specimen than his five-foot-five-inch frame usually attracts, when the hostess confronts him with a problem the likes of which Good Housekeeping has never seen. There is a corpse in the backyard gazebo, and the party is definitely over. The murdered girl was the twenty-year-old daughter of the town’s Cadillac dealer, a troubled young woman with a self-destructive streak. The police focus their investigation on her drag-racing boyfriend, local bad boy David Egan, whom McCain agrees to defend. When Egan dies in a freak car accident, the case seems closed. But examining the hot rod shows a cut brake line—and a motive for a killing far more complicated than good girl gone bad.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Acht jonge terranauten, vier vrouwen en vier mannen, laten zich vrijwillig opsluiten in een ‘ecosfeer’, de e2. Want wat als de aarde daadwerkelijk door de klimaatveranderingen onbewoonbaar wordt, waar verkast de mensheid dan naartoe? Twee jaar lang moeten de acht zich zien te redden in deze e2 met wat ze aan bestaansmiddelen hebben meegekregen bij het naar binnen gaan. Voortdurend worden ze in deze vissenkom door de hele wereld gadegeslagen, want als media-evenement is het ongekend populair. Eervol, gekmakend, en ook een recipe for disaster. Boyle neemt met chirurgische precisie het menselijk handelen en falen van dit overlevingsspel onder de loep en schrijft een meesterlijke roman over een actueel en prangend probleem: het klimaat en hoe wij daarmee omgaan.

READING: Donald Sully woont al vijftig jaar in het doodsaaie plaatsje North Bath ten noorden van New York. In al die jaren heeft hij niet heel veel geluk gehad. Gescheiden en nu in een halfslachtige relatie met andermans vrouw, woont hij boven zijn bejaarde oud-lerares Engels die hem soms nog steeds de les leest. Opgescheept met een slechte knie en met vrienden die vijanden overbodig maken, probeert hij op zijn manier wat van het leven te maken. Maar dan krijgt Sully met een heel nieuw probleem te maken: zijn van hem vervreemde zoon dreigt in zijn vaders voetsporen te treden. Met geraffineerde en aanstekelijke humor en begrip voor zowel menselijke dwaasheden als overwinningen is Niemands gek weer een knap voorbeeld van Russo’s vertelkunst.

READING: EVERYONE FOR EVERYONEthe book (volumes I & II) by Samuel A. Nigro, M.D. The Everybody for Everybody Book is the accumulation of what was learned over 70 plus years of life, over 45 years of marriage, over 40 years as a psychiatrist, 3 years in the U.S. Navy Submarine Service, and as a first generation American with five children and ten grandchildren. The planet and mankind are amazing. To limit ourselves to behaviors as if there is nothing more, is contradicted by an accurate comprehensive understanding of the planet and the universe. Basically, love is superior to all and the universe is the entropy necessary for the expression of love. Love itself requires there to be more. Nothing more is a cruel joke that life and love are meaningless. All logic and reason demand there be more, and we should act as if there is even much more love in anticipation. And if there isnt, then there ought to be! Regardless, the world would be better by believing in such and acting as such. The book provides some articles but most of it is the way to live a transcendental life: organized matter sanctified and given a soul by identity, truth, oneness, good and beauty for everyones life, liberty, and pursuit of happinesspartially the subtitle of the book. You get substance and the transcendental principles for living that save by actuality for a change. This is in contrast to the virtual reality culture of the unreliable manipulating self-discrediting noisy glitzy press&media imposed substanceless non-being which, by suggestibility, turns us into choiceless aliens instead of free persons for the planet. By the self-worshiping self-discrediting press&media, we are on the madman road-rage race to the bottom culture of pollution, disgust, death, and decline. Not by this book. Against vulgar suggestibility and glitz caused gullibility, this book gives real being by teaching six analogous ways of living the wisdom-filled eight categories of metaphors of love in the cone of space-time: As a human particle by elementary physicsevent, spectrum, field, quantum, singularity, dimension, uncertainty, and force. As a human being by community universalsdignity, unity, integrity, identity, spirituality, life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. As a C/catholic, Roman or otherwise, by the sacramentsBaptism, Penance, Holy Communion, Extreme Unction, Holy Orders, Matrimony, and Grace. As a Christian by the virtuesfaith, hope, charity, prudence, justice, courage, temperance, and holiness. As a patient by the universal variables of all therapyliving things are precious, selective ignoring, subdued spontaneity non-self excluded, affect assistance, detached warmth & gentleness, non-reactive listening, C2CC centered candidness, and peace & mercy. And as sanctified by the last words of the crucified Christ. Take your pick or combine them all. Except for the quantity, it is simple. Thousands of aphorisms and concepts about every imaginable topic are offered to teach ancient secrets from nature and natures God (to quote the Founding Fathers of America). Interspersed in the book are the worlds first SEX SATIRES...fiery hilarious...which will help all cope with the prurience flooding the world as entertainment, advertisement and games. SEX SATIRE, properly applied to those exploiting sex, will free you from sex craziness and help keep societys prurience from disrupting your transcendental life. Read it through once; then a few pages or a chapter daily; and problem-solve as needed by index and perusal. You will be better. The world will be better. You will learn to be a real human being for everyone. And you will have your soul back by embracing the universal Mass mantra: life-sacrifice-virtue-lovehumanity- peace-freedom-death.

This novel will encompass what the characters not only see, but what they've experienced, have gone through, envisioned of the future to come, the past they just left, and are coming to grips with. My plots are inventive only to the point of my characters perspectives, feelings, thoughts, challenges, and personal sacrifices.

READING: Springtime 1985. The Night Stalker murders his way across Los Angeles, but the municipality of Willow Heights isn't too concerned. The 24/7 news coverage of rape and murder is boring compared with the news of fifteen year old Ricardo caught in flagrante delicto with a boy named Steve in the high school parking lot. One by one, relatives, friends, repudiate Ricardo. He'd never been one to feel alone or afraid or be the kind of person who backs down, but when his parents kick him out, Ricardo's not-so-peaceful life is shot to hell. Family is family--Ricardo is too stupid to believe anything otherwise. He means to go back home again, even if he has to bash on a tadpole loser classmate and his God-crazy aunt or be chummy with ruthless gangs. He might even be willing to shed some of his ugly prejudices. Even then, all his determination might not be nearly enough, not when the Night Stalker has dark plans in Willow Heights .... Solace is the first episode of a coming of age suspense serial, featuring amidst the 1980's AIDS scare, a macho gay boy, a tadpole straight boy, and their harrowing encounter with a serial killer.
