Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for his epic novel Empire Falls, Richard Russo is the author of six novels and two short story collections. Known for his dead-on depictions of life in the declining small towns of America, Russo is considered a master craftsman and chronicler of his times. In this interview, Russo discusses the pleasure he finds in writing fiction as well as his surprise in how much he enjoys the process of screenwriting, so much so that he’s accepted commissions to write screenplays for the works of others.
