The times are never so bad : a novella & eight short stories by Andre Dubus ( Book )
12 editions published between 1983 and 2010 in English and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The classic Dubus collection—now available as an ebook Dubus’s fourth collection is a compassionate depiction of lives that are never as neat as his characters would have them beIn his fourth collection, Andre Dubus revisits the themes of infidelity and fallibility that he has been known to explore with such unflinching honesty and unfailing respect. Set in the New England landscape and populated by the men and women he has come to claim as his own, these stories are ultimately characterized by their extraordinary ordinariness. They are a reverent testament to the quiet sadness of humble lives. Deeply moving and insightful, The Times Are Never So Bad is yet another masterful work by a writer whose Chekhovian sensibilities inform—yet never distract from—his own fully realized perspective.

"Hank and Jack have been best friends since high school. Hank married Edith, the prettiest girl Jack had ever seen, and Jack married Terry whom he thinks he may no longer love. But Hank and Edith's adultery didn't begin or end with Jack and Terry. Moving, perceptive, rendered in clear-eyed prose, We Don't Live Here Anymore maps with preternatural insight the often separate lands of love and marriage."--Jacket
