Here at AudioFile we knew this audiobook would be an Editors’ Pick as soon as we pushed play! Mark Bramhall is superbly skilled and has a beautiful voice with amazing range, but what astonishes here is his humanity, not to mention sense of humor, as he brings Russo’s entire town of North Bath, New York, to madcap life. Russo has never been better than in this virtuoso revisit to the scene of his earlier book, NOBODY’S FOOL. Listen to a sound clip and read our full review of EVERYBODY’S FOOL HERE.

“I didn’t know Richard Russo’s work until I opened this fabulous book, so it was daunting to realize that it was essentially a small epic, and that I was to embody this whole lovely mud-pit of flawed people. It was a huge privilege, and a wonderful learning experience, to find Russo’s sweet irony and live for a while in his crazy–but oddly heroic–community.” -Mark Bramhall
