Book Review: Straight Man by Richard Russo

Really liked this one. A bit heavy handed with the one-liners after a while but I suppose there’s no getting around that for this particular protagonist.
Russo is just a fantastic author all around. I liked this book a lot. Had some truly ridiculous scenes, very amusing, and yet managed to work on a realistic and serious level. Much like life, which is where Russo really shines.
3 stars.
