These twenty-three stories represent the best work of one of the finest and most emotionally revealing writers in America. Andre Dubus treats his characters--a bereaved father stalking his son's killer; a woman crying alone by her television late at night; a devout teenager writing in the coils of faith and sexuality; a father's story of limitless love for his daughter--with respect and compassion. He turns fiction into an act of witness. Books by Andre Dubus also in Vintage Contemporaries paperback: Dancing After Hours.
"Like some of the most satisfying storytellers of the past (Dubus has been compared to Chekhov), he is munificent, spinning out whole lifetimes and recounting events from many characters' viewpoints. For the lyricism and directness of his language, the richness and precision of his observations and the generosity of his vision, he is among the best."--Village Voice
"Dubus's characters resemble those of Raymond Carver...but the stories stand alone in their idiosyncratic spiritual cast, occasionally religious, more often expressive of devotion to the people he lives among."--New York Times Book Review

My new Electra Townie bike. I really like it! I've taken it on a couple 6+ mile rides so far and love it. I want to get a cargo rack for the back of it. Maybe in a while.

Townie getting a lift from our little Honda Fit. It rides a little weird in the rack, but I don't think it's hurting anything.

Townie takes place in Oldon, Massachusetts, a burgeoning New England village that has become the favored residence of the mega-rich, a town whose historic past has been preserved and polished until it gleams with the arrogant intensity of a Colonial theme park.
Alan Lowe inhabits a different Oldon, however, a town that he loved as a boy for the "power and rightness of its countryside." Now, in early middle age, he finds himself living on the margins of the changing town, in a camp deep within Oldon Woods, "inelegantly sheltered by a stale, army-surplus sheet, perforated here and there with pinholes and rudely draped into the equivalent of a teepee."
Then Alan's seemingly rootless life converges with that of Arthur Worthy, a member of the recently-arrived elite, whose life "bristles with appointments, trips, activities, possessions, responsibilities, and business urgencies." But Arthur lives on the margin, too, as alone and isolated in his mansion as Alan is in his teepee.
They share, as they discover, an unexpected connection, a woman named Anna, "who must be understood as a catalytic force in both of our lives, the intoxicating girl who devolved into the equable woman whose existence served to define our own."
Alan abandons his camp in order to temporarily look after Arthur's mansion and their lives soon become deeply intertwined in an adventure that is ostensibly a business deal but is, more essentially, a search for love and connection with place.
Townie is a picaresque novel of the countryside, funny and skewering about our social and business pretensions, moving and true about our need for roots and authenticity.
