Russ & Daughters

russdaughters.jpgMark Russ Federman talks to Papermag about his new memoir The House that Herring Built, and about life at the LES institution: "Whatever education I had was absolutely of no value in the store. Arguing in court is quite different from some little old lady beating you up over the piece of fish you're giving her. It was a war every day getting fish from the smokers, nasty, dirty, cursing people. My real education was what I got in the store and from the suppliers." [Papermag]
