DMA Arts & Letters Live: Lou Berney & Andre Dubus III
Set in the wake of JFK's assassination, November Road is a poignant and evocative crime novel from the Edgar Award–winning Lou Berney that centers on a desperate cat-and-mouse chase across 1960s America. It is a crime story of unexpected connections, daring possibilities, and the hope of second chances. Berney is the author of several novels, including The Long and Far Away Gone, and his short stories have appeared in the New Yorker and the Pushcart Prize anthology.
Gone So Long, acclaimed writer Andre Dubus III’s first novel in a decade, is the story of a fractured family, a horrible crime, its tragic consequences, and the possibility of forgiveness and redemption. As with House of Sand and Fog (a #1 New York Times bestseller, Oprah’s Book Club Pick, and National Book Award finalist), Gone So Long is at once a gut-punch of a novel packed with intense emotions and a tense, heartrending page-turner that is full of love. Dubus has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, a National Magazine Award, and two Pushcart Prizes. His memoir Townie won an American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature.
