Evil Eye
Evil Eye Joyce Carol Oates

From the towering imagination of literary icon Joyce Carol Oates comes a collection of four dark and compelling novellas about love gone wrong.

Joyce Carol Oates is one of the most prominent writers of her generation. In Evil Eye, she offers four dark and compelling tales of love gone horribly wrong.

The young fourth wife of a prominent intellectual thinks herself happy until the first wife comes to stay. A shy teenager meets a dazzling kindred spirit. But the first sparks of young love soon take on a darker shade...

A spoiled frat boy decides to murder his parents, only to be floored by the power of his mother's love; and a fragile woman reveals deeply buried secrets to her curious lover with devastating consequences...

All of these stories are about love, just not as we like to think of it.

REVIEWS
PRAISE FOR JOYCE CAROL OATES:

'Oates's brand of horror has never required the invocation of other worlds: This world is terrible enough for her. Everything she writes, in whatever genre, has an air of dread, because she deals in vulnerabilities and inevitabilities, in the desperate needs that drive people [...] to their fates. A sense of helplessness is the essence of horror, and Oates conveys that feeling as well as any writer around' New York Times Book Review.

'Both haunting and sublime' Literary Review.

'An unsettling read worth every resulting jump in the night ... [Oates is a] literary goddess' Daily Mail.

'As usual with Oates, it is horribly readable, but driven by something disturbingly like genuine misanthropy' Sunday Times.

'Oates chillingly depicts the darkness lurking within the everyday' Sunday Express.

'A writer of extraordinary strengths'
