About the Author

Andre Dubus III is the author of Such Kindness and 8 other books, including the bestsellers Townie, a memoir, and House of Sand and Fog, a National Book Award Finalist in Fiction and an Oprah’s Book Club selection. He lives in Newburyport, Massachusetts.

Such Kindness charts a remarkable rebirth, not from poverty to wealth but from bitter helplessness to the knowledge of self-worth. The result is a gripping and transformational journey toward kindness, in a tremendously moving novel.--Ann Patchett, author of The Dutch House
Such Kindness is magnificent. A profound and compassionate study of how to be human wrapped in a taut survival story. I loved it so much. This is Dubus at his absolute finest.--Lily King, author of Euphoria
Dubus returns with a heartrending account of one man's desperate quest to retain his sense of goodness under the long shadow of the financial crisis...This is a stirring addition to Dubus's formidable oeuvre.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
Dubus is a scribe of the blue collar, the downtrodden, and the destitute, with an uncanny ability to capture guilt, shame, and anger while also infusing his characters with resilience, strength, and hope. Few writers paint three-dimensional characters with such verve and humanism. Dubus is the Botticelli of Beantown.--Bill Kelly "Booklist (starred review)"
Such Kindness is a deeply spiritual book, almost religious in its focus on forgiveness and connection and a deep belief in the worth of everyone--the broken, the sick, the elderly, and addicted. Andre Dubus III's new novel is a gift to his readers, and a reminder to all of us that we can be better and kinder people.--Tom Perrotta, author of Tracy Flick Can't Win
