Publisher's Summary

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Russo's skillful use of dialogue perfectly suits the audio medium.A wonderfully fun and perceptive novel in the traditions of Thornton Wilder and Anne Tyler, The Risk Pool is set in Mohawk, New York, where Ned Hall is doing his best to grow up, even though neither of his estranged parents can properly be called an adult. Richard Russo gives us a book that overflows with outsized characters and outlandish predicaments and whose vision of family is at once irreverent and unexpectedly moving.

A delightful journey

Thoroughly engaging story full of well-portrayed, fascinating characters and lots of gentle humour. Sean Mangan's narration suited this story perfectly. I enjoyed every minute of it.
