I have to admit, I have not read Andre Dubus' novels. I have, however, heard a couple of excellent interviews with Dubus on NPR, and he is a compelling storyteller.
It's very exciting that Andres Dubus, III will be in Salem at the end of September. A crowd is expected for this reading, so get there early!
