From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Empire Falls, this slyly funny, moving novel about a blue-collar town in upstate New York--and about Sully, one of its unluckiest citizens, who has been doing the wrong thing triumphantly for fifty years--is a classic American story.

"Remarkable.... A revelation of the human heart." --The Washington Post

Divorced from his own wife and carrying on halfheartedly with another man's, saddled with a bum knee and friends who make enemies redundant, Sully now has one new problem to cope with: a long-estranged son who is in imminent danger of following in his father's footsteps. With its uproarious humor and a heart that embraces humanity's follies as well as its triumphs, Nobody's Fool, from Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Richard Russo, is storytelling at its most generous. Nobody's Fool was made into a movie starring Paul Newman, Bruce Willis, Jessica Tandy, and Melody Griffith.

Look for Everybody's Fool, available now, and Somebody's Fool, coming soon.
