Publisher Description

Dubus’s selected works—now available as an ebook

Twenty-three of the best stories by one of America’s 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.” Dubus’s characters are depicted in all their imperfection, but with the author’s 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 author’s estate.

“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

“Dubus is the sort of writer who instructs the heart, and he ought to be discovered by any number of readers.” —The Atlantic Monthly

Award-winning author Andre Dubus (1936–1999) has been hailed as one of the best American short story writers of the twentieth century. Dubus’s collections of short fiction include Separate Flights (1975), Adultery & Other Choices (1977), and Dancing After Hours (1996), which was a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist. Another collection, Finding a Girl in America, features the story “Killings,” which was adapted into the critically acclaimed film In the Bedroom (2001), starring Sissy Spacek, Tom Wilkinson, and Marisa Tomei.
