Oates, Joyce Carol

My heart laid bare / Joyce Carol Oates

New York : Harper, 2015

Abstract: The patriarch of the Licht family, Abraham has raised a brood of talented con artists, children molded in his image, and experts in The Game, his calling and philosophy of life. Traveling from one small town to the next across the continent, from the Northeast to the frontier West, they skillfully swindle unsuspecting victims, playing on their greed, lust, pride, and small-mindedness. Despite their success, Abraham cannot banish a past that haunts him: the ghost of his ancestor Sarah Licht, a former con woman who met with a gruesome fate. As Abraham involves his family in more and more complex and impressive schemes, he finds himself caught between the specter of Sarah and the growing terrors of his present. While his carefully crafted lies and schemes begin to fracture and disintegrate before his eyes, Abraham discovers that the bond of family is as tenuous and treacherous as the tricks he perpetrates upon unsuspecting strangers.

Little bird of heaven / Joyce Carol Oates

New York : Ecco, 2010

Abstract: A searing exploration of the mysterious conjunction of erotic romance and tragic violence in late-twentieth-century America, Little Bird of Heaven returns to the emotional and geographical terrain of acclaimed author Joyce Carol Oates's previous bestsellers We Were the Mulvaneys and The Gravedigger's Daughter. When young wife and mother Zoe Kruller is found brutally murdered, the police target two suspects: her estranged husband, Delray Kruller, and her longtime lover, Eddy Diehl. In turn, the Krullers' son, Aaron, and Diehl's daughter, Krista, become obsessed with each other, each believing the other's father guilty. By novel's end, the fated lovers are at last ready to exorcise the ghosts of the past and come to terms with their legacy of guilt, misplaced love, and redemptive yearning. Told in halves in the very different voices of Krista and Aaron, Little Bird of Heaven is classic Oates—where the lyricism of intense sexual love is intertwined with the anguish of loss, and tenderness is barely distinguishable from cruelty.

Black water / Joyce Carol Oates

New York : Plume, 1993

Abstract: 4 luglio, metà anni '90. Grayling Island, Maine. Una Toyota nera corre a tutta velocità. È notte e gli alberi riducono la visibilità. Al volante un senatore degli Stati Uniti, uomo grande e rassicurante, guidatore aggressivo e alticcio, macina la strada con aria decisa: gli restano solo pochi minuti per raggiungere il traghetto che porterà lui e la giovane Elizabeth Kelly Kelleher, appena conosciuta nel corso di un esclusivissimo party, verso la terra ferma. Poi, una curva, gli pneumatici perdono aderenza, l'auto impazzita esce di strada, sprofonda nell'acqua nera dell'Indian River. L'uomo riemerge dalla palude e si salva. Ventisei anni, una laurea in Storia americana, una ricerca sulla figura del Senatore, Kelly Kelleher perde la vita. Da questo episodio di cronaca che sconvolse l'America (l'uomo era Ted Kennedy, la ragazza la sua giovane segretaria), Joyce Carol Oates ha tratto un romanzo intenso, una storia che scorre nei minuti in cui Kelly, intrappolata nell'auto, ripercorre per rapidi lampi le ore precedenti l'incidente e la sua intera esistenza. La coscienza abbandona la ragazza, le immagini le affollano la mente mescolandosi e correggendo la sua imprecisa visione della realtà. Ricordi e riflessioni, impressioni e brani di dialogo si alternano in una serie di schegge sempre più confuse. Attorno a questa cupa istantanea, reiterata senza pietà capitolo dopo capitolo, Joyce Carol Oates assembla un quadro brutale della tracotanza del potere e della politica
