Author Andre Dubus III Wednesday, JaPlease join us on Wednesday, January 23, at 6 pm to hear New York Times bestselling author Andre Dubus III talk about his latest novel, Gone So Long. After his talk, Andre will be pleased to sign copies of his book. <<< PRIORITY RESERVATIONS are available for this event. Please read about our event reservations. >>> About the book: Daniel Ahearn lives a quiet, solitary existence in a seaside New England town. Forty years ago, following a shocking act of impulsive violence on his part, his daughter, Susan, was ripped from his arms by police. Now in her forties, Susan still suffers from the trauma of a night she doesn’t remember, as she struggles to feel settled, to love a man and create something that lasts. Lois, her maternal grandmother who raised her, tries to find peace in her antique shop in a quaint Florida town but cannot escape her own anger, bitterness, and fear. Most of this novel takes place in Arcadia. One chapter is set in Punta Gorda, and it ends in St. Petersburg. Cathartic, affirming, and steeped in the empathy and precise observations of character for which Dubus is celebrated, Gone So Long explores how the wounds of the past afflict the people we become, and probes the limits of recovery and absolution. Andre Dubus III is the author of Gone So Long, Dirty Love, The Garden of Last Days, House of Sand and Fog (a #1 New York Times bestseller, Oprah's Book Club pick, and finalist for the National Book Award), and Townie, winner of an American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature. His writing has received many honors, including a Guggenheim Fellowship, a National Magazine Award, and two Pushcart Prizes. He lives with his family in Newburyport, Massachusetts.nuary 23, 2019 - 6:00pm
