Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The seven stories collected here-including “Killings,” the basis for Todd Fields award-winning film In the Bedroom-showcase legendary writer Andre Dubuss sheer narrative mastery in a book of quietly staggering emotional power.

A father in mourning contemplates the unthinkable as the only way to allay his grief. A boy must learn to care for his younger brother when their mother leaves the family. A young woman who has never lacked lovers despairs of ever finding love itself, and then makes an accidental discovery that brings her real joy. Culled from Dubuss treasured collections Selected Stories and Dancing After Hours, these beautiful stories of people at pivotal moments in their lives are some of the most bewitching and profound in American fiction.

Review:

"Dubus's characters resemble those of Raymond Carver...but the stories stand alone in their idiosyncratic spiritual cast, occasionally religious, more often expressive of devotion to the people he lives among." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Dubus is the sort of writer who instructs the heart." Atlantic Monthly
