28.09.2016 - Richard Russo

Since the 1980’s Richard Russo has written seven novels, amongst which the bestseller Bridge Of Sighs and Nobody’s Fool. However, he is most famous because of his novel Empire Falls, for which he was awarded with a Pullitzer Prize in 2002. In 2005, he rewrote the story himself to make it into the HBO miniseries with the same name, which was also received with a lot of praise, awards and nominations.

The New York Times wrote about Russo ‘being one of the best novelists around’ and John Irving calls him ‘admirable’.
This born storyteller is visiting BorderKitchen on the occasion of the publication of the Dutch translation of his wonderful classic Nobody’s Fool, which now for the first time appears in Dutch.
Journalist and writer Arjan Visser will interview Russo on 28 September, in the theatre of the Royal Academy of Art The Hague.
The Dutch Translation of Nobody’s Fool (Niemands gek). The book was translated from English by Kees Mollema.
