Trajectory - Richard Russo

Staff Pick
If there’s anything Russo’s protagonists are sure of in these four stories, it’s that they’re not sure. Whether it’s a college professor’s angst about how to respond to her student’s obvious plagiarism, or the meanderings through Venice of a man trying to reconnect with his estranged, insincere brother, existential self-doubt is ever-present. The rueful, sometimes melancholic tone that carries across the book is counterbalanced by wry self-effacing humor and occasional glimmers of hope. Any one of these narratives could form the basis of a fully-fledged novel, yet Russo is equally adept at using a shorter format to craft something substantive.
