Have you read any Richard Russo?

For some reason, my entire comment didn't post.  Here's the rest.

 I don't know why his novels are so
compelling, because his characters are pretty uniformly abused and
miserable.  I'm always fascinated about this idea of writing a
character, where the author has an entire persona in there mind, where
they actually come to know this figment like a real person...

I haven't, but I've looked at them a few times.  I trend more towards genre fiction, for the most part.

My wife is jealous of me.  The characters that I create take up residence in my head.  I'm glad I married someone who sees that as a virtue rather than a sign of instability.

Gotta go.  Mack wants me to move his story forward...
