'Bridge of Sighs' Captures Life in Small-Town USA

Richard Russo's novel, Bridge of Sighs, is a story about unexceptional people in an unexceptional upstate New York town.

Russo won the Pulitzer Prize for his novel Empire Falls, a story about the relationships between people in a small town in Maine.
