About this book
A hugely ambitious, sweeping novel from the author of "Blonde", "The Falls" and "We Were The Mulvaneys". It tells the tale of Rebecca Schwartz, born in the late 1930s to an immigrant family from Nazi Germany, and the immense disappointment her family suffers in America. 'Every single Oates novel I've read has added to my conviction that she is a genius.' Julie Myerson, "Independent On Sunday"
From the author of 'Blonde', 'The Falls' and 'We Were the Mulvaneys', this new novel takes in the themes of race, immigration, family and social mobility, and is Joyce Carol Oates at her storytelling best.
