Resenhas

Too many ill defined characters; some humor; some good writing. I liked his other books better.

Russo writes chiefly about his difficult relationship with his mentally fragile mother.

Recommended by the National Book Critics Circle in their summer picks for most humorous literary works. This is my fourth (?) Russo book and I'm starting to weary slightly of his patient wives and overbearing parents but for anyone who's been in academe, this book is pretty damn funny.
