Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of May 2017: Trajectory is composed of four relatively long short stories, all of which eschew the blue collar characters that people most associate with Russo’s work. Instead these stories are about writers and college professors, taking apart their fears and wants with authorial precision, and showing us again why Russo is one of our greatest writers. --Chris Schluep, The Amazon Book Review

Review

“Thoughtful, soulful . . . It will abruptly break your heart. That’s what Richard Russo does, without pretension or fuss, time and time again.”—Jennifer Senior, The New York Times 

“[Trajectory is] so rich and flavorsome that the temptation is to devour it all at once. I can’t in good conscience advise otherwise.”—Laura Collins-Hughes, The Boston Globe

“Russo develops these stories with smooth assurance, allowing readers to discover layers of meaning in his perfectly calibrated narration.”—Publishers Weekly

“Russo rarely wastes a word, interweaving details and dialogue into master classes on storytelling.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred)

“Russo’s [characters] are sharply in view, and like opera singers performing quintets or sestets, they are all vital contributors. Equally significantly, their problems spring from their personalities, and the resolutions are heart-warming because they do indeed feel like real possibilities. . . . All four stories are challenging because they raise questions about why we live our lives the way we do, and if that’s all right.”—Claire Hopley, The Washington Times
 
“Russo has fashioned tales compact enough to make an immediate impression (and to read in a single sitting), but rich [in] believable characters, graceful plotting and pointed dialogue.”—Peter Tonguette, The Columbus Dispatch

“Entertaining and compellingly provocative. . . . vibrant narratives with distinctive characters.”—Robert Allen Papinchak, New York Journal of Books
