9781781853641: Evil Eye

Joyce Carol Oates is one of the most prominent writers of her generation, and she is fearless when exploring the most disturbing corners of human nature. In "Evil Eye," Oates offers four chilling tales of love gone horribly wrong, showing the lengths people will go to find love, keep it, and sometimes end it. In "Evil Eye," we meet Mariana, the young 4th wife of a prominent intellectual. When her husband's brazen first wife visits one night, Mariana learns a terrible secret that threatens her marriage and sanity. In "So Near, Anytime, Always," shy teenager Lizbeth meets Desmond, a charming boy who offers this introverted girl the first sparks of young romance. Yet just as their relationship begins to blossom, Lizbeth realizes that beneath Desmond's perfect facade lies a dark soul that could wreak havoc on Lizbeth and her loved ones. In "The Execution," spoiled college student Bart Hansen has planned the perfect, brutal crime to get back at his parents for their years of condescension. Yet what he didn't plan for is a mother whose love is more resilent than he could have ever imagined, who threatens to derail his carefully laid-out plans.

Product Description:

Joyce Carol Oates is one of the most prominent writers of her generation. In EVIL EYE, Oates offers four dark and compelling tales of love gone horribly wrong.

The young fourth wife of a prominent intellectual thinks herself happy until the first wife comes to stay...

A shy teenager meets a dazzling kindred spirit. But the first sparks of young love soon take on a darker shade...

A spoiled frat boy decides to murder his parents, only to be floored by the power of his mother's love...

A fragile woman reveals deeply buried secrets to her curious lover with devastating consequences...

All of these stories are about love, just not as we like to think of it.

Review:

'A writer of extraordinary strengths' Guardian.

'If the phrase 'woman of letters' existed, Joyce Carol Oates would be, foremost in this country, entitled to it' John Updike.

'This writer is a phenomenon' Daily Mail.

'Oates is a brilliant, unstoppable writing-machine and this collection of stories is Oates at her best - spare, swift, beautifully observed and quietly lethal' The Times.

'Extremely compelling... we cannot look away no matter how gruesome the sight' Spectator.

'Readable but troubling tales ... Oates unnerves to the last' The Independent.

'A creepy, macabre thrill from start to finish ... a spine-chilling, hair-raising denouement of amazing power. Terrific stuff' Independent on Sunday.
