In Gone So Long, Andre Dubus III weaves a very empathetic story about the crime a man commits and its long-reaching repercussive aftermath. The author's deep level of character development is masterful. By the end, the reader will know all of the lead characters so well, they will feel like a member of the family. Be ready for some tears as you become a part of this disjointed family unit. This powerful story and the echoes of lost love emphasizes that life is fleeting and can be gone in an instant, so hold the ones you love close.

“Precision of language, artistry of plot. The author plays no favorites with the three main characters (Daniel, who killed his former wife, Linda, in a fit of rage; Susan, who witnessed the homicide decades earlier; and Lois, Linda’s mother, who raised Susan). Each character and storyline is fully developed, giving the reader a great sense of how and why they are who they are. I felt empathy for each of them (yes, even a man who killed his wife!) and read the book on the edge of my seat!”
