Description

Andre Dubus III probes the limits of recovery and absolution in this masterpiece of empathy.

An ex- con who did time for murder, the estranged daughter he hasn’t seen in forty years and the grandmother angry enough to kill him all come together in this riveting family drama. Like Dubus’s already- classic memoir, Townie, and his novel House of Sand and Fog (a #1 The New York Times bestseller), Gone So Long is a profound exploration of the struggle between the selves we wish to be and the ones—shaped by chance and circumstance, as well as character—that we can’t escape.
