Joyce Carol Oates is in full fire here. The motifs and themes of this rich, intricately textured, realistic novel belong to the American experience of the 1950s and '60s. But the vision of life that animates them is so clear and unflinching that the past comes to us with the force of revelation. "Fiction of extraordinary imaginative power."--The New York Times Book Review. Nominated for the National Book Award.
