Description
The need for love—obsessive, self-destructive, unpredictable—takes readers to unexpected, sometimes forbidden places in this collection of ten razor-sharp stories by National Book Award winner Joyce Carol Oates.

"The heart is a lonely hunter, and it also is vengeful, untrusting, and cruel, as Oates proves in this fine collection of 10 tightly focused tales about love and its aftermath. In the epistolary title story, a young woman writing after many years to her alleged abuser, a biblical scholar, inspires sympathy at first, but a very different emotion by the end. Hidden snapshots propel a man into obsession about his wife's past in 'The First Husband.' The ambiguous memories of a woman with a history of drug and mental problems build to a crescendo in 'Smother.' A 13-year-old girl finds her resolve when she's the only female with a group of drunken, threatening men in 'Strip Poker.'... Each story shows the power of Oates's never-ending clear, clean prose."—Publishers Weekly
