The Winter Father is the second volume in a three-volume reissue of the collected short stories and novellas of Andre Dubus and features an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winner Richard Russo. Raised by a Cajun-Irish Catholic family in Louisiana, Dubus grappled with themes of family, love, sin, and redemption, and how these internal struggles inform our human relationships and ability to empathize with others. This volume particularly focuses on what it means to be a family, dealing with divorce, adultery, and the difficulty of balancing the responsibilities of parenthood with one’s own desires as an individual.
