    That Old Cape Magic is a novel of deep introspection and every family feeling imaginable, with a middle-aged man confronting his parents and their failed marriage, his own troubled one, his daughter's new life and, finally, what it was he thought he wanted and what in fact he has.

    Fred Pike says: "Instantly-recognizable Richard Russo book"
    "thumbs down"
    Overall

    Although I have read Russo twice before ("Empire Falls" and "Bridge of Sighs") I found this novel basically boring and wondering why I should care about the protagonist or his problems (I get it... his parents could not love him... let's move on). I do recognize how brilliantly the author can construct a sentence and was many times blown away by his prose, but I would not recommend this novel.
