A NoveleBook - 2012
&́#x80;Oates is just a fearless writer ... with her brave heart and her impossibly lush and dead-on imaginative powers.&́#x80; &́#x80; Los Angeles Times &́#x80;[An] extraordinarily intense, racking, and resonant novel.&́#x80; &́#x80; Booklist (starred review) One of the most acclaimed writers in the world today, the inimitable Joyce Carol Oates follows up her searing, New York Times bestselling memoir, A Widow&́#x80;s Story, with an extraordinary new work of fiction. Mudwoman is a riveting psychological thriller, taut with dark suspense, that explores the high price of repression in the life of a respected university president teetering on the precipice of a nervous breakdown. Like Daphne DuMaurier&́#x80;s gothic masterwork, Rebecca, and the classic ghost story, The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James, Oates&́#x80;s Mudwoman is a chilling page-turner that hinges on the power of the imagination and the blurry lines between the real and the invented&́#x80;and it stands tall among the author&́#x80;s most powerful and beloved works, including The Falls, The Gravedigger&́#x80;s Daughter, and We Were the Mulvaneys.
