The Garden of Last Days: A Novel

Andre Dubus III


“So strong, so rattling compulsively readable, that i will be able to infrequently think it.” ―Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

In his wonderful follow-up to the number 1 best-selling House of Sand and Fog, Andre Dubus attracts us into the lives of 3 deeply improper, pushed humans whose paths intersect on a September evening in Florida. April, a stripper, has introduced her daughter to paintings on the Puma membership for males. There she encounters Bassam, a international consumer either distant and too own, and loose along with his cash. in the meantime, one other guy, AJ, has been thrown out of the membership, and he’s under the influence of alcohol and offended and lonely. From those explosive components comes a continuing, uncooked, and page-turning narrative that seizes the reader through the throat with mental rigidity, intensity, and realism.
