Ressenyes

Not my fav Russo but still enjoyable. I did not like the parents of the main character (I think we were supposed to find loveable rascals). Still, I related to the protagonist's struggle to understand, accept, and ultimately love his mother and father. A pitch-perfect view of academic life and politics and (my husband who would know such things) life on Cape Cod.

Too many ill defined characters; some humor; some good writing. I liked his other books better.
