Description

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.
