In the Bedroom - Seven Stories by Andre Dubus

Author(s): Andre Dubus; Todd Field (Produced by)

Literary Fiction

The seven stories collected here-including "Killings," the basis for Todd Field's award-winning film In the Bedroom-showcase legendary writer Andre Dubus's sheer narrative mastery in a book of quietly staggering emotional power. A father in mourning contemplates the unthinkable as the only way to allay his grief. A boy must learn to care for his younger brother when their mother leaves the family. A young woman who has never lacked lovers despairs of ever finding love itself, and then makes an accidental discovery that brings her real joy. Culled from Dubus's treasured collections Selected Stories and Dancing After Hours, these beautiful stories of people at pivotal moments in their lives are some of the most bewitching and profound in American fiction.
