Andre Dubus is celebrated for his ability to depict the subtlest of human emotions in his characters, and when he turns the microscope on himself, the resulting insights are no less illuminative. Intimate and expressive, these autobiographical accounts of his childhood in Louisiana, his experiences in the Marine Corps, and, later, his life as a husband and father, paint a vivid portrait of this acclaimed author.
