Broken Vessels
Boston, Godine, (1991). His first book of nonfiction, a collection of essays, which was a finalist for the 19992 Pulitzer Prize in the category of General Nonfiction. Inscribed by Dubus to another author (of children's books) who at the time lived in a neighboring town. Also signed in full by Dubus on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. A nice literary association, and a reminder that Dubus was famous for being supportive of, and a mentor to, younger writers: for many years he held a weekly writers' workshop in his home, free of charge, as a way (he said) of giving back for all the help he received from his literary friends and colleagues after his traumatic accident.
