Product description

In this heartbreakingly beautiful book of disillusioned intimacy and persistent yearning, beloved and celebrated author Andre Dubus III explores the needs and weaknesses of people seeking gratification in food and sex, work and love. A controlling manager discovers his wife's infidelity after twenty-five years of marriage. An overweight young woman gains a romantic partner but loses her innocence. A philandering bartender/aspiring poet betrays his pregnant wife. And a teenage girl fleeing a dirty image of her posted online seeks respect in the eyes of her great-uncle Francis and of an Iraq veteran she met while surfing the Web.
