The Book Show #1249 - Richard and Kate Russo
Pulitzer-prize winner Richard Russo's latest book is a tribute to the printed word. In what many perceive as a coldly relentless digital age, Russo has teamed up with his daughter, artist Kate Russo, to create Interventions, their tribute to the printed book. For it, they chose three stories, Horseman, High and Dry, The Whore’s Child and the title novella, Intervention. This collection contains individually bound copies of the four volumes, each paired with a small, full-color print of a painting by Kate Russo, and gathered in a slipcase.
Richard Russo is the author of seven novels, including That Old Cape Magic, Bridge of Sighs, Straight Man, Nobody’s Fool, and Empire Falls, which won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize. He has also written a collection of short stories and several produced screenplays. Kate Russo has a Bachelor of Arts from Colby College and a Master of Fine Arts from The Slade School of Fine Art in London, England. Her art has been exhibited all over England and recently at Susan Maasch Fine Art in Portland, Maine.
