Summary

Summary

Joyce Carol Oates explores with bloodcurdling insight the ties that bind—or worse.

In “The Man Who Fought Roland LaStarza” a woman’s world is upended when she learns the brutal truth about a family friend’s death—and what her father is capable of. Meanwhile, a businessman desperate to find his missing two-year-old grandson in “Suicide Watch” must determine whether the horrifying tale his junkie son tells him about the boy’s whereabouts is a confession or a sick test. In “Valentine, July Heat Wave” a man prepares a gruesome surprise for the wife determined to leave him. And the children of a BTK-style serial killer struggle to decode the patterns behind their father’s seemingly random bad acts, as well as their own, in “Bad Habits.” Other stories explore family relationships and emotions with gruesome and sometimes horrifying results.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Suspense fiction is like a powerful drug: one page, on etaste, can induce such a tingly, speedy feeling that it takes an almost superhuman effort not to finish everything off in just one sitting. At least, that’s how it is with Joyce Carol Oates’ new collection…You just can't put this book down.” New York Times Book Review
“Oates delivers her narrative from the protagonist’s point of view, lending her stories a chilling immediacy.” Minneapolis Star Tribune
“What are the qualities that make [Oates’] short fiction so distinctive? They are numerous, but a few stand out: their narrative intensity, their astonishing variety and inventiveness, and their crackling verbal energy, which almost never falters…Oates’ mystery stories are deft at uncovering the more unsavory aspects of American culture in our time.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“As ever, Oates shocks, delights, and amuses because she’s so good at what she does.” Baltimore Sun
