Local author Andre Dubus III stands outside the Tap Restaurant on Washington Street in downtown Haverhill. Dubus’ new book, “Townie,” focuses on Dubus’ childhood and growing up in Haverhill.
Becoming a writer helped Andre Dubus III forge a relationship with his father, but making himself completely whole took more. (Michele McDonald/ Globe Staff/ File 1992)

“House of Sand and Fog is a novel of terrible truths. Everyone here wants what we want—love, justice, a home—and all their good intentions collide, violently, inevitably, in a story of remarkable power and veracity and tenderness. Andre Dubus III has a keen and generous eye, and the great gift of bestowing dignity on even the most confused of his people. I cared for them all, and mourned their fates.”
