"His is an unapologetically sacramental vision of life in which ordinary things participate in the miraculous, the miraculous in ordinary things".
So wrote Tobias Wolff, seven years ago, about Andre Dubus's Broken Vessels, and that insight describes perfectly the 25 essays in his new collection. Here is Dubus on matters of all sorts: a gay naval officer, his own crippling, meeting a woman who witnessed his accident, lost autumnal pleasures, his first real summer job, the rape of his first books, his dear friend Richard Yates, and (of course) the Catholic Church.
A writer of immense moral sensitivity, vulnerability, and thoughtfulness -- at the peak of his game -- whose work "is suffused with grace, bathed in a kind of spiritual glow" (New York Times Book Review).
