We are delighted to welcome you back to this in person event at our Manchester, VT store!
The award-winning bestselling author will join us to discuss his latest book, a Northshire Staff Pick many times over. To one man’s painful moral journey, Dubus brings compassion with an edge of dark absurdity, forging a novel as absorbing as it is profound.
Tom Lowe has lost just about everything. His wife, a meaningful relationship with his son, his ability to work, and his self-respect. He lives with constant, near-crippling pain. This extraordinary novel opens with his attempt to steal the garbage of the banker who sold him a loan he couldn't afford back when Tom had everything. He is pretty close to rock-bottom. Then a few chance encounters with strangers who treat Tom like a human being who deserves respect awaken a subtle shift in his attitude. Dubus has written a powerful and moving story that I found nearly impossible to put down. — Reviewed by Stan Hynds
