Andre Dubus III
As a young boy, Andre Dubus III settled in Haverhill, MA, a mill town along the Merrimack River, with his single mother and three siblings. His father, the short story writer Andre Dubus II, was an indelible yet absent presence. Andre soon discovered power, physically as a boxer, then through words as a writer. Bestselling novels that Mr. Dubus has written include The House of Sand and Fog, The Garden of Last Days (soon to be a major motion picture), The Cage Keeper and Other Stories, Bluesman, and a novella collection, Dirty Love. His novel, Gone So Long, is on The Boston Globe's list of The Best Books of 2018. Among prestigious awards are his Guggenheim Fellowship & two Pushcart Prizes. Mr. Dubus' books are published in over twenty-five languages and he teaches full-time at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Nearby, he and his wife Fontaine, have raised three children. Mr. Dubus joins us while teaching a workshop at Eckerd College, Writers in Paradise, St. Petersburg, FL.
