Winner of the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for his novel Empire Falls, Richard Russo is acclaimed for capturing the “foolishness of this lonely world, but also the humor, friendship and love that abide” (San Francisco Chronicle). His many other novels include Bridge of Sighs, That Old Cape Magic, and Nobody’s Fool, which was adapted into a popular film starring Paul Newman. “Like hopping on the last empty barstool surrounded by old friends” (Entertainment Weekly), Everybody’s Fool catches up with the world-worn protagonist Sully and the irresistible residents of North Bath, New York. Trajectory is a collection of four sprawling short stories far outside the blue-collar realm Russo has mapped in his many novels.
