Looking for the human soul
There are no lies in Andre Dubus’ pages, just a constant and piercing exploration of the human soul, a constant digging work aimed at understanding the dynamics of love relationships, be they within marriage or out of it. Without coming to moralistic conclusions.
The three novellas are the stories of two young couples, caught between friendship and infidelities. The delicacy in describing women, the calm mood of every representation and the author’s lengthy archaeological work, in reconstructing what lies behind the very act of life, make this an unmissable book.
