    One thought on “Graceful Lies”

    1. I am a huge fan of Andre Dubus, so when I heard that Joseph Hurka studied with and befriended Dubus, I felt compelled to read this book. This story collection does not disappoint. Like Dubus, Hurka is a student of human emotion, bearing witness to the ways it emerges through the masks we all put on to get through our daily lives. Highly recommend this book. Feel free to check out my conversation with Hurka about this book on NHPR.
