Twenty-three unforgettable short stories from one of America's most celebrated literary masters. 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 just as human as we are, and there is much to learn from their complicated, tragic, irrepressible lives. Including such acclaimed masterworks as 'A Father's Story', 'Townies', 'The Winter Father', and 'Killings', the short stories and novellas compiled here represent the best work of one of our most accomplished and acutely sensitive authors. Dubus's Selected Stories is 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.
