Richard Russo lives with his wife in Camden, Maine, and in Boston. In 2002 he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Empire Falls.


Here you've got a guy in terrible, terminal trouble -- he's going to die, he's convinced he's going to die in four days -- [who] is emptying his mind and writing of his life, facing things he's never faced before, with total candor because nobody's going to see it for 50 to 100 years, if ever. And he has no idea that every single word is going into the Internet and the whole planet is watching.
