ABSTRACT
Presents an interview with novelist Andre Dubus III, author of "House of Sand and Fog" and "The Garden of Last Days." Asked if his acting experience informs his writing, he says it is necessary in both to be receptive to the character's feelings. About how his craft has changed over time, he says people develop more technical skill the more they write, but creating imaginative truth becomes harder. He says he writes five days a week because much of what he writes he does not ultimately use. INSET: The Andre Dubus III File.
