Since I came to him late, I'll say the Selected Stories is a great place to start, and then his most recent collection, Dancing After Hours. Great Stuff in that one. And his essay last collection, which I quoted for the diss intro. Meditations from a Moveable Chair.

The story "Killings" (in the selected volume) inspired the film In the Bedroom.

Also, Xavier University Press just released a fantastic book full of tributes to Dubus from other writers.

All right, back to the topic now...
