Bridge of Sighs by Richard Russo

Reviewed by Suzanne M Hugus, NCSU Staff, CALS

If you’re thinking of an Italian prison spy novel, well, don’t read this book. If you want a book that you never want to end, though, that warms the heart, and probably touches your own experience, read this amazing title. The story is about the life of a young man who reflects on his childhood while causing you to experience it as well! Friendships, prejudices, love, etc. I read a lot of books and this was the best over the entire summer.
