Andre Dubus III reads from his novel The Garden of Last Days at the Loft Literary Center on Monday, June 8, at 7:00pm. The event is co-sponsored by Magers & Quinn Booksellers and The Loft Literary Center.
In The Garden of Last Days, his stunning follow-up to the #1 best-selling House of Sand and Fog, Andre Dubus draws us into the lives of three deeply flawed, driven people whose paths intersect on a September night in Florida. April, a stripper, has brought her daughter to work at the Puma Club for Men. There she encounters Bassam, a foreign client both remote and too personal, and free with his money. Meanwhile, another man, AJ, has been thrown out of the club, and he’s drunk and angry and lonely. From these explosive elements comes a relentless, raw, and page-turning narrative that seizes the reader by the throat with psychological tension, depth, and realism.
“So good, so damn compulsively readable, that I can hardly believe it.” –Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly
