‘Interventions,’ a tribute to printed books
Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo has teamed up with his artist daughter Kate Russo to create a tribute to the physical book. “Interventions,” a boxed set of four slim paperbacks by Richard, is a pleasure to hold. It contains the stories, “Horseman” and “The Whore’s Child”; the memoir “High and Dry”; and the previously unpublished novella “Intervention” about a Maine realtor. Each volume has a work by Kate on the cover and inside is a postcard-sized print by her.
