An intense roller-coaster ride into the abyss, Man Crazy charts the fall and rise of teenager Ingrid Boone, abandoned by her father, moving from town to town, taking what she can get and always giving too much in return. This is a novel about the horrors waiting at the end of the road for the innocent, but in the end it is about one girl's realisation that men don't make you more real, that pain isn't an integral part of normal life.

Her writing is sinister, gothic and full of atmosphere ... one of America's most original and disturbing voices (SUNDAY TIMES)
Oates is one of the finest and most devastating living writers ... this novel [is] extraordinary ... a darkly comic monologue of panic and desperation, which, thankfully, allows you back up once it's dragged you down (JULIE MYERSON, MAIL ON SUNDAY)
The bizarre twists and turns of Ingrid's life take on a hallucinatory intensity ... the one constant of the gripping story - the emotional deprivation that has scarred Ingrid for life - comes through with a fierce burning clarity (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)
A remarkable new novel from one of America's best-selling writers. Filled with luminous, haunting imagery and rich emotional intensity, MAN CRAZY is a profoundly affecting tale of love, reconciliation and hope. This is Joyce Carol Oates at her finest.
