Summary
Andre Dubus's short stories and novellas illuminate the lives of women and men cast against harrowing and heartrending circumstances. The gripping themes of Dubus's oeuvre - faith and family, violence and loyalty, guilt and morality - have earned him comparisons to master storytellers such as Raymond Carver, Flannery O'Connor, and Anton Chekhov. With a deft touch, Dubus tackles nearly unspeakable subjects. Yet, without succumbing to sentimentality, he imbues his characters with a quiet dignity in stories infused with an unerring belief that even the most complicated moments of our lives contain the possibility of grace
