Review: The Garden of Last Days

The Garden of Last Days
The Garden of Last Days by Andre Dubus III

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A cast of deeply flawed (in some cases far less than sympathetic) characters intersect as they play out their own doomed fates and make bad life choices. The book made me uncomfortable, even angry, but I suspect this was Dubus’ intent. Much more than just a book about “where were you on September 10th, 2011?” this is masterful storytelling.
