Here is the book that won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 2002. This Advance Reading Copy is in Very Fine condition with all corners square and it is perfectly clean. Richard Russo, from his first book Mohawk, up to the present time, has clearly demonstrated his empathy with the Human Tragicomedy. With Empire Falls, a stunning novel, he extends even further his claims on the blue-collar heart of the country. This is the story of Dexter County, Maine, and specifically the town of Empire Falls. Empire Falls has been in decline for decades and has lost just about all of its businesses. The working classes, meanwhile, continue to attempt to eke out a living with what is left. This story centers around Miles Roby, a decent man encircled by history and dreams, empty churches and abandoned mills, and by the comforts and feuds provided by lifelong friends and neighbors.Fine proof. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

Price = 75.00 USD
