Description du Livre

The classic Dubus collection—now available as an ebook
 
Dubus’s second collection of short fiction: a compassionate portrayal of man’s journey from childhood to maturity
 
For the adolescents in Part One of Andre Dubus’s Adultery & Other Choices, youth is characterized by humiliation, alienation, and disappointment: A son struggles to connect with his distant father, and later he must overcome a schoolyard bully. Then, for the soldiers that inhabit Part Two, service is synonymous with sacrifice, as marriages and limbs falter and fail. But for the bitterly lonely wife of a promiscuous professor, a hopeless affair with a dying ex-priest provides her with the strength necessary to retake control of her life.
 
In the aptly titled follow-up to Separate Flights, Dubus expertly traces the arc of human life, and with subtle grace honors the men and women he portrays with such faithful veracity.
