Cape Man 

Though Richard Russo has set most of his novels in the Northeast, there's nothing provincial about the small-town tensions, small-time failures of nerve, and uneasy family histories in them. His characters have felt just as rueful in upstate New York as they have in "the Midfuckingwest." That's how the protagonists' parents refer to our part of the country in the Pulitzer Prize winner's most recent book, the summery, bittersweet That Old Cape Magic, just out in paperback. Russo speaks at the Kansas City Public Library's Plaza Branch (4801 Main) at 6:30 p.m. Call 816-701-3407 to make a reservation or see kclibrary.org.
