PRAISE FOR ANDRE DUBUS III
“A mixture of classical tragedy perfectly imbued with film noir…. House of Sand and Fog is the work of a writer who is the real thing.”
— The Baltimore Sun
“I can think of no novelist who renders the gritty, down-and-out corners of New England better than Dubus, and those beautifully specific, contained slices of American life open into whole universes of love, violence, guilt, and betrayal.
— The New Republic
“Affecting…. A gentle and winning first novel [Bluesman]…. Dubus is a sympathetic and compassionate chronicler of ordinary lives.”
— Publishers Weekly
