Meditations from a Movable Chair
Whether he is writing of the relationship with his father, the rape of his beloved sister, his Catholic faith, the suicide of a gay naval officer, his admiration for fellow writers like Hemingway and Mailer, or the simple act of making sandwiches for his daughters' lunchboxes, Dubus cuts straight to the heart of things. Here we have a master at the height of his powers, an artist whose work "is suffused with grace, bathed in a kind of spiritual glow" (The New York Times Book Review).

"Dubus's prose is lathed to perfection. . . .[His] essays are every bit as dramatic, captivating, and full of mystery as his fiction."--The Boston Globe"
