Andre Dubus III

Gone So Long

Hardcover Forthcoming October 2018

Dirty Love
“Beautifully contained slices of American life open into whole universes of love, violence, guilt, and betrayal.” —Chloe Schama, New Republic (on Dirty Love)

Andre Dubus III is the most visceral of writers. In GONE SO LONG, his first novel in a decade, he once again enters the collective bloodstream to write of our insecurities, possessiveness, lusts, and fears; of violence and our search for love and redemption. 

As a young man, Daniel Ahern was what his father called a “hothead,” so much so that in a fit of jealousy and fear that his wife will leave him, he murdered her with a kitchen knife. Now, forty years later, facing his own death, he wants to see his daughter, wrested from his arms by police that night, and sets out to find her.

His three-year-old daughter, Susan, witnessed the crime without understanding or remembering it, and now in her forties, still suffers the oppression of an “enemy” that keeps her emotionally trapped.  Her grandmother Lois, the mother of the murdered woman, now in her 80s, still rages.  All three suffer the consequences of Daniel’s crime for the rest of their lives, but the biggest burden falls on the women, to create safe havens for themselves. 

Full of vitality and the precise observations of character for which Dubus is known, GONE SO LONG steers towards a place of honesty if not forgiveness; a coming together that at least brings hope--if not for us, then for the future.
