really liked it

Author Andre Dubus explores human relationships and motivation in this story that brings together 4 unlikely characters in the seamier side of life in south Florida: April, who works as a stripper to pay the bills and care for her young daughter Franny; Jean, April's landlady, babysits for Franny only to discover that the little girl gives her life a new purpose; AJ, a lonely young man estranged from his wife and a frequent customer to the strip club where April works; and April's rich foreign customer, Bassam, whose money comes with contempt for American life and values. April's young daughter goes missing while being cared for at the strip club tying these characters together in a chain of events set on the eve of one of the greatest American tragedies of our time. If you enjoyed The House of Sand and Fog, you will find the suspense and storytelling still top notch in this new book by Andres Dubus.
