In the Bedroom

Seven Stories
A collection of stories by

The seven stories collected here&#8211;including &#8220;Killings,&#8221; the basis for Todd Field&#8217;s award-winning film In the Bedroom&#8211;showcase legendary writer Andre Dubus&#8217;s sheer narrative mastery in a book of quietly staggering emotional power.

A father in mourning contemplates the unthinkable as the only way to allay his grief. A boy must learn to care for his younger brother when their mother leaves the family. A young woman who has never lacked lovers despairs of ever finding love itself, and then makes an accidental discovery that brings her real joy. Culled from Dubus&#8217;s treasured collections Selected Stories and Dancing After Hours, these beautiful stories of people at pivotal moments in their lives are some of the most bewitching and profound in American fiction.
