Andre Dubus III “Townie”
April 18th, 2011
Can a boy whose adolescence is steeped in violence break the cycle and emerge a better, more empathetic man? Meet Andre Dubus III, bestselling author, son of a literary lion, and living proof that the cycle can be broken.
In his memoir “Townie,” Dubus describes what happened to his family when his father, famed short story author Andre Dubus, left them to fend for themselves on the wrong side of the tracks in a blue-collar Massachusetts town. But this story, instead of ending with Dubus being led away to prison, or worse, is a faith-renewing account of how one young man, hungry to understand the victims of violence, found answers in his writing.
