A short story collection about obsession and sin by “one of the great living American writers, both of mystery-crime-suspense fiction and of virtually every other form invented” (Otto Penzler). This generous book (21 stories divided into three parts) includes the unforgettable fictions “Faithless,” “Secret, Silent,” “The Stalker,” “The Vampire,” or “The High School Sweetheart: A Mystery.”
In this collection of twenty-one unforgettable stories, Joyce Carol Oates explores the mysterious private lives of men and women with vivid, unsparing precision and sympathy. By turns interlocutor and interpreter, magician and realist, she dissects the psyches of ordinary people and their potential for good and evil with chilling understatement and lasting power.
