Speaking of “Townies’: Andre Dubus III’s New Book

The Eagle-Tribune today on Page 1, above the fold, previewed Andre Dubus III’s new memoir: “Townie.” The Merrimack Valley author and UMass Lowell professor is earning high praise in advance reviews for his searingly honest story about growing up in Haverhill and environs during the ’70s, when mill cities in the valley were all in various phases of recovery. He tells a tough tale about surviving as a kid in a fractured family and turning his life toward creative, productive, and compassionate ends. The book is set for release at the end of February.  Read about it here, and get the Eagle-Tribune if you appreciate the coverage.
