Broken Vessels: Essays
The reflective essays of one of America’s most accomplished authors
Andre Dubus is celebrated for his ability to depict the subtlest of human emotions in his characters, and when he turns the microscope on himself, the resulting insights are no less illuminative. Intimate and expressive, these autobiographical accounts of his childhood in Louisiana, his experiences in the Marine Corps, and, later, his life as a husband and father, paint a vivid portrait of this acclaimed author. Limned with sapience and depth of feeling, Broken Vessels contains the personal reflections of a writer whose keen perceptions of the human heart are destined to be treasured for generations to come.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Andre Dubus including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.
