“Stressed by tension… [E]find with a hint of hope.”—Rob Merrill, Associated Press
Cathartic, affirming, and filled with the empathy and insightful observations of character that Dubus is renowned for, Gone So Long explores how past wounds afflict the people we become.
Gone So Long is a riveting family drama about an ex-con serving time for murder, the estranged daughter he hasn’t seen in forty years, and the grandmother angry enough to kill him. A deep exploration of the struggle between the selves we wish to be and those we cannot escape, shaped by chance and circumstance as well as character, confirms Andre Dubus’s reputation as a novelist whose “compassion is not sentimental.” and imperturbable, total and unshakable” (Paul Harding).
