Richard Russo, known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Empire Falls, describes his writing process as "hiking without knowing where your trails are going." As a "late-career novelist," he learned that when he runs out of experience, he reads the terrain and weaves a story from the clues he can see ahead. Russo reads from his two very different novels, the epic Bridge of Sighs and the comic That Old Cape Magic and discusses his approach to writing everything from screenplays to short stories.
