Reviewer: Louis Menand, (New Yorker)

"[Richard Russo] is a sentimental, humorous, ruminative, occasionally satirical, and extremely unhurried writer....His drama is modestly scaled, but his anthill is convincingly alive with ants."

Reviewer: Karen Sandstrom, (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

"BRIDGE OF SIGHS, the new novel by Richard Russo, might be my favorite Russo novel yet....It's so nice to be back in his company after six years that I haven't fully emerged from the gratitude that overtook me when I picked up the book....[It] is a rich, warm American novel full of brains and soul."

Reviewer: Jeffrey Frank, (Publishers Weekly)

"BRIDGE OF SIGHS, [Richard] Russo's splendid chronicle of life in the hollowed-out town of Thormaston, large-hearted, vividly populated and filled with life from America's recent, still vanishing past."

Reviewer: Bob Minzesheimer, (USA Today)

"No novelist writes better about struggling small towns and the working class than Richard Russo, whose last novel, EMPIRE FALLS, won a Pulitzer Prize in 2002. BRIDGE OF SIGHS explores both familiar and new territory. It's his most ambitious and best work."

"Rich, comforting, and absorbing--utterly irresistible." (starred review)

Reviewer: Janet Maslin, (New York Times Book Review)

"It is a novel of great warmth, charm and intimacy, but not one of earth-shattering revelations....Some of this book's most memorable moments take the form of sharp, funny storytelling."
