あらすじ・解説

A brilliant and thought-provoking novel about family, loyalty and betrayal

Once I’d been Daddy’s favourite. Before something terrible happened.

Violet Rue is the baby of the seven Kerrigan children and adores her big brothers. What’s more, she knows that a family protects its own. To go outside the family - to betray the family - is unforgivable. 

So when she overhears a conversation not meant for her ears and discovers that her brothers have committed a heinous crime, she is torn between her loyalty to her family and her sense of justice. The decision she takes will change her life for ever.

Exploring racism, misogyny, community, family, loyalty, sexuality and identity, this is a dark story with a tense and propulsive atmosphere - Joyce Carol Oates at her very best.

And the point was...?

I have found myself too often feeling deflated and mystified by the actual point of the story when it comes to Oates’ work.

This story is about a deeply unlikeable family treating each other terribly and then having pretty crappy lives. I don’t get it. What did the main character learn in her life other than all men are evil apparently?? Narration was fine.

Joyce Carol Oates always incredible

How does she do it, gets into the minds of people and portrays them so well. I highly recommend this book and all JCO books. The narrator compliments the story perfectly.
