Synopses & Reviews
Adultery and Other Choices is our second collection of Andre Dubus' work. In it, we follow the fortunes, fantasies and modest adventures of Paul Clement, a sensitive, small-town Louisiana boy, as he grows to manhood.
Manhood, in his case, means a stint as an enlisted man in the U.S. Marines, with the ritual ragging and closed community codes, the physical trials and emotional flashpoints.
