    I am a Russo fan . . especially his early, Gloversville-region, books. So I was interested and intrigued by the this book, which is large about his mother and his relationship with her, but also talks about life in Gloversville, his grandfather, and his father, all of whom have clear correlatives in the early books. Much of El;sewhere was fascinating, but much seemed more like diary than memoir, and the middle part dragged somewhat. Nonetheless, Russo conveys emotion and empathy as to his characters.
