|CATALOG ENTRY||Joyce Carol Oates|
If you've read anything by Joyce Carol Oates then you know she has that ability to change styles... her one consistency is the lack of cheerful stories or characters. This book is a collection of short stories, all on the edge of disturbing. Not supernatural disturbing, but Oates writes about what people are capable of given the right circumstances and head space. What I love about Oates is that her characters are really never victims... what we sow, we reap. Our actions and choices carry rewards and punishments, she has chosen to explore the punishments no-one ever wants to reap....
We have many titles available from this prolific and versatile writer.
