Dubus tells his tragic tale from the viewpoints of the two main adversaries, Behrani and Kathy. To both of them, the house represents something more than just a place to live. For the colonel, it is a foot in the door of the American dream; for Kathy, a reminder of a kinder, gentler past. In prose that is simple yet evocative, House of Sand and Fog builds to its inevitable denouement, one that is painfully dark but unfailingly honest. --Alix Wilber
What truly makes this story come alive in the reader's mind is the amazing voice of each character.
The read left me wishing that the plot had been thought out just a bit more because I'm certain that there is a vastly better book here really wanting to happen.
After the main story and plot were developed, I felt as if Dubus couldn't figure out how to get his characters out of this situation.
Dirty Love is SO much better than this. Most of the sections from Kathy's point of view were boring, particularly in the first part of this book. Read morePublished 9 days ago by mally
