The lottery of life …

… Chances Are by Richard Russo review – the role of luck in American lives. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
  The heroes’ professions of real estate, academic publishing and sound engineering – sketched in with small but resonant details – might be thought boring in ordinary times, but for their generation represent a glorious escape. Russo’s subject is the guilt and responsibility of having fallen on the better side of fate.
