10. Nobody's Fool

By Richard Russo (549 pp.)

Holy moly this was a long book. It felt long. I love Richard Russo and this was easy enough to read, even when I just had a short time to dip into it. But after all that I'm not sure where we've been. The protagonist is a jerk at the beginning and a jerk at the end - but not without some humanity. Things were screwed up at the beginning and screwed up in a different way at the end. As in all Russo stories, the characters are pitiful and hilarious. I didn't hate it but it's not my favorite Russo book.
