UK Kirkus Review » When struggling Persian immigrant Behrani buys a small bungalow in an auction with the last of his precious savings, little can he imagine the long and bitter struggle that ensues. After a clerical error, previous owner, estranged 35-year-old Kathy Lazaro, was mistakenly evicted and is desperate to reclaim her home and her disrupted life. Told sympathetically from the perspective of both parties, Andre Dubus III weaves a tragic and powerful tale of crushed dreams, bruised love and everyday hardship in modern America. He invites you into the hearts and minds of his characters so that their dilemmas and hardships seem as real as your own. Beautifully written, brilliantly crafted and utterly compelling from the very first page, The House of Sand and Fog deserves to be filed under 'modern classic' for its vivid attention to detail, remarkable characterization and unforgettable plotline.
