From the Publisher:
A follow-up to House of Sand and Fog follows an intersection of three people at a men's club on a September night in Florida, including a stripper who has brought her daughter to work with her, a wealthy and remote foreign client, and an angry alcoholic who has been thrown out of the club. Reprint.
Annotation:
In his follow-up to the bestselling HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG, Andre Dubus III tackles issues of sex, desire, culture, and despair in the days leading up to September 11th, 2001. April, a stripper in Florida, is forced to bring her young daughter to her nightclub job, an event that leads to an altercation with one of her nervous Islamic clients, a desperate man with a terrible secret mission. Culture conflict and sexual tension escalate to an electric level in Dubus's fascinating literary thriller.
Author Bio
Andre Dubus
Andre Dubus lived much of his life in Massachusetts. Married and divorced three times, he was the father of six children. He was a peacetime Marine sergeant and a college teacher; he was also a devout Roman Catholic. A highway accident in 1986 left him a paraplegic, after which his career flourished. "My condition increased my empathy," he said in 1996. (He wrote about the accident and its aftermath in a book of essays, "Broken Vessels".) Dubus received numerous awards, including the PEN/Malamud Award, the Jean Stein Award from the American Academy of Arts & Letters, a Guggenheim fellowship, and a MacArthur "genius grant." In the words of Kurt Vonnegut, Dubus was "one of the world's few living masters of the most difficult of all art forms, short stories." Dubus's stories have been compared to those of Chekhov, Carver, and O'Connor. He died suddenly of a heart attack at the age of 62.

Praise

"Dubus' hyperdetailed, visceral, and prurient yet undeniably compassionate thriller boldly explores the bewildering complexities of sexuality, and the dire repercussions of isolation and desperation."
