Everybody's Fool

In these pages, Richard Russo returns to North Bath, the Rust Belt town first brought to unforgettable life in Nobody's Fool. Now, ten years later, Doug Raymer has become the chief of police and is tormented by the improbable death of his wife--not to mention his suspicion that he was a failure of a husband. Meanwhile, the irrepressible Sully has come into a small fortune, but is suddenly faced with a VA cardiologist's estimate that he only has a year or two left to live.
