    Review quote
    "Dubus is the sort of writer who instructs the heart." -"The Atlantic Monthy ""It is a rare thing to admire an artist from a distance and upon meeting him not be disillusioned. After meeting Andre my admiration for his courage, talent, and humanity grew tenfold. . . . If you have never read him, get ready-you will never be the same again." -Todd Field, from the Preface "The lives of his characters become part of any close reader's permanent bank of important memories." -"The Boston Globe" "Like Chekhov's, Dubus's best stories contain the arc of a whole life in the language of specific moments." -"The Village Voice"
