Synopsis:
Sweeping, humorous and greatly moving, The Risk Pool is a 30-year saga of Sam Hall, a roguish hellraiser, and of his introspective son, Ned. When Sam abandons the family, Ned vacillates between his nervous mother and his reckless father, struggling to win his father's affection.

Review:
"Richard Russo has it just about perfect in 'The Risk Pool'....A gem of a novel."

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Review:
"Characters with the emotional weight of people we've known in real life."

New York Times

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 1994. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Vintage Contemporaries ed. 203 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. A wonderfully funn and perceptive novel in the traditions of Thornton Wilder and Anne Tyler, The Risk Pool is set in Mohawk, New York, where Ned Hall is doing his best to grow up, even though neither of his estranged parents can properly be called adult. His father, Sam, cultivates bad habits so assiduously that he is stuck at the bottom of his auto insurance risk pool. His mother, Jenny, is slowly going crazy from resentment at a husband who refuses either to stay or to stay away. As Ned veers between allegiances to these grossly inadequate role models, Richard Russo gives us a book that overflows with outsized characters and outlandish predicaments and whose vision of family is at once irreverent and unexpectedly moving.
