Prof. Michael Nelson of the Department of Political Science has published a review of Richard Russo's new novel Everybody’s Fool for the Claremont Review of Books. The book tells the goings on of a small town in upstate New York. Among the characters is “Kurt Wright, a seductive teacher of political science at a North Bath liberal arts college,” Nelson writes, but within months of the teacher’s arrival, the social fabric of the department began to fray. Read the review.
Nelson writes on various subjects including English composition, sports, music, history, sociology, and American Presidency. His newest book is 42: Inside the Presidency of Bill Clinton.
