"Andre Dubus, one of the 20th century's most gifted short story writers."--The New York Times
The Winter Father includes stories originally published in The Times Are Never So Bad and Finding a Girl in America. In The New Yorker, John Updike wrote, "Mr. Dubus is a shrewd student of people who come to accept pain as a fair price for pleasure, and to view right and wrong as a matter of degree; without moralizing, he suggests that their self-inflicted punishments are often worse that what a just court, or a just God, would decree." This volume of Collected Short Stories & Novellas includes Killings--the basis of the Academy Award-nominated film In the Bedroom and an introduction by Richard Russo.
