Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Empire Falls returns to North Bath, the Rust Belt town first brought to unforgettable life in Nobody’s Fool. • "Irresistible.... Very funny.... A joy." —The New York Times

Now, ten years later, Doug Raymer has become the chief of police and is tormented by the improbable death of his wife—not to mention his suspicion that he was a failure of a husband. Meanwhile, the irrepressible Sully has come into a small fortune, but is suddenly faced with a VA cardiologist’s estimate that he only has a year or two left to live.

As Sully frantically works to keep the bad news from the important people in his life, we are reunited with his son and grandson . . . with Ruth, the married woman with whom he carried on for years . . . and with the hapless Rub Squeers, who worries that he and Sully aren’t still best friends. Filled with humor, heart, and hard-luck characters you can’t help but love, Everybody’s Fool is a crowning achievement from one of the great storytellers of our time.

Look for Nobody's Fool, available now, and Somebody’s Fool, coming soon.

A visit with old friends

If you have seen the film made from the previous book in this series (“Nobody’s Fool”) you will immediately associate the characters with the actors who played them. Paul Newman as Sully, Bruce Willis as Carl Roebuck and Philip Seymour Hoffman as Raymer. The film and the book were terrific and when I learned there was a sequel I was delighted to have a chance to return to Bath NY and this cast of appealing misfits stumbling through their lives. My only advice is to read Nobody’s Fool first but I suppose you can read them in any order you like.

Great Stand-Alone

This book was amazing as a stand-alone piece. You don’t need to have read Nobody’s Fool - in fact it’s probably better having not. Loved it as a solo novel!
