Andre Dubus III presents Gone So Long
In conversation with Elizabeth Strout
Renowned, #1 New York Times bestselling author of House of Sand and Fog, The Garden of Last Days, and others, Andre Dubus III presents his first novel in a decade, Gone So Long. The novel opens with a description of Daniel Ahearn, as written by his middle-aged daughter Susan, a writer struggling to find her true story and a woman struggling to find stability in her life. The description is part of Susan’s new writing project, which brings her into her traumatic past even as her present threatens her with further upheaval. 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 presents his novel in conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning and New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout.
