Joyce Carol Oates adds to her extraordinary body of work with this stunning novel of violence and love.

Iris is the only witness to the crime. The two of them are growing up in the early 1950s in a New York industrial town where racial boundaries keep people apart--or bring them together in explosive scenes of fear or desire.

Scott Fitzgerald, Eudora Welty, Flannery O'Connor, Saul Bellow, and John Updike have among them written hundreds of short stories, do anthologists settle on the same two or three titles by each author again and again? "Isn't the implicit promise of an... View more info
