In an interview with "City Lights" host Lois Reitzes, the author spoke about the challenge of writing short stories, working with actor Paul Newman and the over-arching themes of “Trajectory,” including self-evaluation:

“Most of the characters in these stories have in common the fact that they’ve reached a point in life where they’ve begun to look backwards as much as forwards … that point in your life when you begin to look at the life you’ve led and compare it to the one you intended to lead … and most of us discover at some point that the life that we have ended up leading may not be the one that we had in mind.”

Russo speaks tonight at the Margaret Mitchell House.
