Richard Russo has written seven novels, including Empire Falls, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize. Much of Russo's fiction takes place in the Northeast--from upstate New York to coastal Maine--and his most recent novel, That Old Cape Magic, is set largely on Cape Cod. Russo's short story "The Whore's Child," the title story of his only short story collection, is the 2011 selection for One City One Story. In addition to his fiction, Russo has written screenplays and adapted his own novels into films. He and his wife Barbara spend their summers in Maine and winters in Boston, where Russo is a beloved member of the literary community.
