Dubus' prowess with narrative compression is on full display in the story "Waiting": the hollow ache experienced by a woman widowed by the Korean War took Dubus fourteen months to write and was more than one hundred pages in early manuscript form but spans a mere seven pages in published form.Writing in the New York Times Book Review, Joyce Carol Oates called "The Pretty Girl"-the opening novella of The Times Are Never So Bad-"the most compelling and suspenseful work of fiction [Dubus] has written."Richard Russo's introduction to this volume grapples with his complex feelings on reading Dubus' work over many decades, but when it comes to the much-anthologized masterpiece "A Father's Story," Russo writes: "I won't mince words. It's one of the finest stories ever penned by an American."
