Trajectory by Richard Russo 256 pages

The latest work by Richard Russo is described as stories-not short stories,  yet not long enough to be novellas.  These “medium to long stories” define Russo at his most poignant with little of his usual laugh-out-loud humor.  Each has main characters who must face life’s disappointments and take a good look at themselves and their relationships.  However,  each vignette ends with a positive, uplifting epiphany.

I have always enjoyed Russo, and,  for me, Trajectory is just one more example of what an accomplished,  versatile writer he is.
