Richard Russo’s new novel, "Chances Are...," is out today. In it, three sixty-six-year old men convene on Martha's Vineyard one beautiful September day, friends ever since meeting in college circa the sixties. They couldn't have been more different then, or even today.
Lincoln's a commercial real estate broker, Teddy a tiny-press publisher, and Mickey a musician beyond his rockin' age. But each man holds his own secrets, in addition to the monumental mystery that none of them has ever stopped puzzling over since a Memorial Day weekend on the Vineyard in 1971.
Richard Russo is the author of eight novels, most recently "Everybody’s Fool" and "That Old Cape Magic;" two collections of stories; and the memoir "Elsewhere." In 2002 he received the Pulitzer Prize for "Empire Falls."
Russo will join Joe Donahue to discuss the new novel, "Chances Are..," on Wednesday, August 21 at 7 p.m. at the Arthur Zankel Music Center at Skidmore College in an Off The Shelf taping of The Book Show presented by Northshire Bookstore.
