Beasts by Joyce Carol Oates

A young woman tumbles into a nightmare of decadent desire and corrupted innocence in a superb novella of suspense from National Book Awardwinner Joyce Carol Oates. Art and arson, the poetry of D. H. Lawrence and pulp pornography, hero-worship and sexual debasement, totems and taboos mix and mutate into a startling, suspenseful tale of how a sunny New England college campus descends into a lurid nightmare. A small gem.... Oates does not disappoint, nor does she waste a word.The Washington Post Book World Oates often takes on sensational subject matter ... yet rarely has she done so with the churningly quiet understatement of ... Beasts.Los Angeles Times A cunning fusion of Gothic romance and psychological horror story, and one of her best recent books.Kirkus Reviews Oatess new novel is a slim one, but it packs a serious punch.Associated Press Delicious ... Beasts is something of a jeu desprit noir.... The novella length is exactly right for it.The New York Review of Books
