1 Russo, Richard Empire Falls
New York Knopf 2001 0679432477 / 9780679432470 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover 
Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Beige boards quarterbound in maroon cloth. The spine is stamped in silver. Octavo. 483pps. Stated First Edition. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is very lightly rubbed; the original price is intact. ".Dexter County, Maine, and specifically the town of Empire Falls, has seen better days, and for decades, in fact, only a succession from bad to worse. One by one, its logging and textile enterprises have gone belly-up, and the once vast holdings of the Whiting clan (presided over by the last scionís widow) now mostly amount to decrepit real estate. The working classes, meanwhile, continue to eke out whatever meager promise isnít already boarded up. Miles Roby gazes over this ruined kingdom from the Empire Grill, an opportunity of his youth that has become the albatross of his daily and future life. Called back from college and set to work by family obligations -- his mother ailing, his father a loose cannon -- Miles never left home again. Even so, his own obligations are manifold: a pending divorce; a troubled younger brother; and, not least, a peculiar partnership in the failing grill with none other than Mrs. Whiting. All of these, though, are offset by his daughter, Tick, whom he guides gently and proudly through the tribulations of adolescence."

2 Russo, Richard Interventions (A Novella and Three Stories)
Maine Down East Books 2012 First Edition Original Wraps Russo, Kate 
Four paperback volumes, Fine in slipcase as issued. Each volume is clean, bright, and soundly bound and includes a full-color artwork by Kate Russo, the author's daughter. The slipcase is also in Fine condition, very mildly rubbed.

"In what many perceive as a coldly relentless digital age, the Pulitzer Prize winning author teamed up with his daughter create a tribute to the printed book.
The four tales in Interventions crackle with Russo's perceptive wit and unwavering compassion for the human condition; and each volume is paired with a small color print of a painting by Kate Russo. Inspired by the psychological landscape, these paintings explore the dark places of the character's psyches, that fear or injustice they obsess about."

".'Mohawk' is an outstanding first novel, a poignant, unforgettable story of old passions and enmity set in a leather town in upstate New York where the tanneries have long ago begun to close down. Writing with extraordinary assurance, Richard Russo unfolds the story of a mystery that has bound two families, the Grouses and the Gaffneys, together for over two decades. 'Mohawk' is a drama of small-town life that captures all the comedy and tragedy of the human experience. With its rich variety of characters and events, its warmth and humour and the simple power of its storytelling, it is a first novel of remarkable maturity and appeal."
