Dubuss selected worksnow available as an ebook Twenty-three of the best stories by one of Americas finest practitioners of short fiction John Updike once said of his friend and fellow writer Andre Dubus: [He] is a shrewd student of people who come to accept pain as a fair price for pleasure, and to view right and wrong as a matter of degree. Dubuss characters are depicted in all their imperfection, but with the authors requisite tenderness and compassion. After all, they are human just as we are human, and their fates not so unlike our own. The short stories and novellas compiled here represent the best work of one of our most accomplished and acutely sensitive authors, and make up an anthology unmatched in its collective portrayal of the human condition. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Andre Dubus including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the authors estate.
This fictional memoir, the first of an autobiographical trilogy, traces a self professed failure's nightmarish decent into the underside of American life and his resurrection to the wisdom that emerges from despair. From the Trade Paperback edition.
