This is a dazzling collection, in themes and style a masterly addition to the author's oeuvre. Oates is again concerned with men and women caught up in complex, destructive, adulterous relationships, as exemplified by the stories Ancient Airs, Voices, and Double Solitaire. Surf City, Golden Gloves, and Raven's Wing depict the lives of working class men who suffer the irony of luck meted out in insignificant doses. The brutish, shocking worlds of Little Wife and Testimony are in stark contrast to the elegance of Nairobi, in which every spare detail implies an insubstantial truth. Little Blood-Button is a needling, repellent gem of a monologue. Oates expertly draws in the reader to bear witness to a wide range of richly experienced and realized lives. A searing, faultless performance. - Library JournalKeywords: FICTION LITERATURE AMERICAN SHORT STORIES JOYCE CAROL OATES RAVENS WING SIGNED FIRST EDITION
