Synopsis:

With Empire Falls Richard Russo cements his reputation as one of America’s most compelling and compassionate storytellers.

Miles Roby has been slinging burgers at the Empire Grill for 20 years, a job that cost him his college education and much of his self-respect. What keeps him there? It could be his bright, sensitive daughter Tick, who needs all his help surviving the local high school. Or maybe it’s Janine, Miles’ soon-to-be ex-wife, who’s taken up with a noxiously vain health-club proprietor. Or perhaps it’s the imperious Francine Whiting, who owns everything in town–and seems to believe that “everything” includes Miles himself. In Empire Falls Richard Russo delves deep into the blue-collar heart of America in a work that overflows with hilarity, heartache, and grace.


Review:

"[A] rich, humorous, elegantly constructed novel rooted in the bedrock tradition of American fiction. Needless to say, this is easily Mr. Russo's most seductive book thus far....It's about the price of reconciling dreams with disappointment, and the many unexpected ways of finding salvation....This book works like a prism, regarding the same people and events from different perspectives until they are finally, deeply understood."

Janet Maslin, New York Times, 05/10/2001

Review:

"Russo gives us a panoramic yet nuanced view of the imaginary town of Empire Falls, Maine, showing how the history of one powerful family can become the history of a place. It's the kind of big, sprawling, leisurely novel, full of subplots and vividly drawn secondary characters, that people are always complaining is an endangered species. Yet in part thanks to Russo's deft satiric touch--much of the book is laugh-out-loud funny--it never feels too slow or old-fashioned."

Maria Russo, Salon, 05/17/2001
