Staff Reviews


Dubus, author of House of Sand and Fog, has crafted another propulsive drama marked by excellence in character-driven plot and tension that quietly builds to the story’s climax. No one lays bare the minds of his characters the way Dubus does, and this novel, revolving around an act of violence that takes place within a family, deftly alternates points of view between a father, a daughter, and a grandmother, each with their own terrible need to come to terms with the long-ago incident. A masterful work by one of the great novelists of our time

“Precision of language, artistry of plot. The author plays no favorites with the three main characters (Daniel, who killed his former wife, Linda, in a fit of rage; Susan, who witnessed the homicide decades earlier; and Lois, Linda’s mother, who raised Susan). Each character and storyline is fully developed, giving the reader a great sense of how and why they are who they are. I felt empathy for each of them (yes, even a man who killed his wife!) and read the book on the edge of my seat!”
