Book Review: The Garden of Last Days

Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

By Andre Dubus III (W.W. Norton)

What do an exotic dancer, a father with a restraining order against him, and an Islamic terrorist have in common? They all walked into the same Florida strip club in the days before the 9/11 attacks. So begins the new tension-filled novel from the author of House of Sand and Fog. The book is more than just another 9/11 recap, as Dubus takes a risk in trying to get into the minds of people from divergent worlds to show the multitude of ways moral dilemmas play out, how lives can become intertwined, and the personal impact of global events - even at a lap-dance mecca.
