Joyce Carol Oates' terrible, dated, cliched over the top novella about rape, vengeance, and the media. What, JCO and "terrible" in the same sentence? Yes, I said it. Oh, maybe it might have been groundbreaking if had been published in the 1950's or 1960's. I don't think so; but it sure isn't today. It was made into a terrible, dated, and so on movie called Vengeance: a Love Story, with Nicholas Cage at his most tired and bewildered. I don't blame him.

My first Joyce Carol Oates book, a novela. A challenging structure with flashbacks and plot results that are left for the reader to imagine. I plan to follow up with another one or two novels to get an idea of Oates method.

This was really intense read. It had a deep sadness to it but also a strange beauty. The quirkiness of relationships & belonging was explored in a very unusual way.

A short, but definitely not sweet, novel with Oates' usual complicated characters. Thought-provoking and a good read.
