A recent immigrant from the Middle East-a former colonel in the Iranian Air Force-yearns to restore his family's dignity in California. A recovering alcoholic and addict down on her luck struggles to hold onto the one thing she has left?her home. And her lover, a married cop, is driven to extremes to win her love.

Andre Dubus III's unforgettable characters-people with ordinary flaws, looking for a small piece of ground to stand on-careen toward inevitable conflict. Their tragedy paints a shockingly true picture of the country we live in today.

"Elegant and powerful.... An unusual and volatile literary thriller." -- Washington Post
"[A] fine and prophetic novel." -- Los Angeles Times
"It is rare these days to encounter a novel that follows the rules of Greek tragedy.... Dubus is a taker of risk.... A craftsman of character and dialogue, Dubus has dared to push his limits." -- San Francisco Chronicle
