Book Expert Short Lists Russo's Latest
BookExpo America, an annual, national bookseller convention, is touting the latest from Maine writer Richard Russo. That Old Cape Magic was among titles recommended by the fiction buyer for Barnes & Noble — and that's typically a good sign for authors. Russo won a Pulitzer Prize for Empire Falls, his story of life in a decaying mill town. Russo also edited A Healing Touch: True Stories of Life, Death and Hospice, published by Down East in 2008.
