Table Ronde: France
Chatto & Windus: U.K.
The story of the lifetime relationship between Pulitzer Prize winner Richard Russo and his mother is one of the most moving this writer has ever told.
Implicit in the story is the lifelong commitment Richard and his wife, Barbara, made in helping a deeply disturbed woman whose condition was misdiagnosed and mistreated by the medical profession to live a sane and productive life.
This memoir makes a fascinating companion to the author’s works of fiction. Readers will find interesting parallels between the two.
