Andre Dubus III, Townie

"The best first-person account of an author’s life I have ever read. I sincerely believe Andres Dubus III may be the best writer in American. His talent is enormous. No one who reads this book will ever forget it."
James Lee Burke

"I’ve never read a better or more serious meditation on violence, its sources, consequences, and, especially, its terrifying pleasures than Townie. It’s a brutal, and, yes, thrilling memoir that sheds light on the creative process of two of our best writers, Andres Dubus III and his famous, much-revered father. You’ll never read the work of either man in quite the same way afterward. You may not view the world in quiet the same way either."
Richard Russo

“Whatever it cost Dubus to bare his soul and write this brutally honest and life-affirming memoir, it is an extraordinary gift to his readers.”
Wally Lamb

Andre Dubus III is the author of The Garden of Last Days and House of Sand and Fog(an Oprah’s Book Club pick and a finalist for the National Book Award). His writing has received many honors, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a National Magazine Award, and a Pushcart Prize. He lives with his family north of Boston.
