Andre Dubus III

Andre Dubus III is the author of the novels Bluesman (1993) and House of Sand and Fog (1999), which was a finalist for the National Book Award and made into an Oscar-nominated 2003 film. His new novel, The Garden of Last Days, follows several troubled characters in the days before September 11 – including one of the Saudi Arabian hijackers, an exotic dancer and her young daughter – whose authentically detailed but starkly different lives intersect.
