Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo (Empire Falls) comes to The Regulator for a reading and booksigning of his new collection of short fiction, «Trajectory: Stories.»

Russo’s characters in these four expansive stories bear little similarity to the blue-collar citizens we’re familiar with from many of his novels. In “Horseman,” a professor confronts a young plagiarist as well as her own weaknesses as the Thanksgiving holiday looms. In “Intervention,” a realtor facing an ominous medical prognosis finds himself in his father’s shadow. In “Voice,” a semiretired academic is conned by his increasingly estranged brother into coming along on a group tour of the Venice Biennale, fleeing a mortifying incident with a student back in Massachusetts but encountering further complications in the maze of Venice.

RICHARD RUSSO is the author of eight novels; two collections of stories; and «Elsewhere,» a memoir. In 2002 he received the Pulitzer Prize for «Empire Falls,» which like «Nobody’s Fool» was adapted to film, in a multiple-award-winning HBO miniseries.
