Please join us in welcoming back to Northshire Andre Dubus III presenting his first book in ten years, Gone So Long. Like Dubus’s award-winning Townie and House of Sand and Fog, Gone So Long is a profound exploration of the struggle between our best intentions and most mercurial desires.
“In his new novel, Dubus reveals character as expertly as I’ve ever seen it done. The three main characters–Susan, a writer and professor in her forties, her grandmother, a tough, hard-to-love antiques dealer in her eighties, and Susan’s father, whom she hasn’t seen since she was three years old–are linked by an unspeakable crime committed forty years ago. Through each of their stories, Dubus explores themes of love and anger, forgiveness and condemnation and perhaps most of all the capacity to love and be loved. This is a slow burn of a novel that gripped me from start to finish.” — Reviewed by Stan Hynds
