Catherine (Revzonian) | 39 comments 13) The Tattooed Girl by Joyce Carol Oates

This is the second Joyce Carol Oates book I've ever read and I LOVED it! I kept wanting to know what would happen to Siegl, Alma (the tattooed girl), Dmitri, Jet... amazing ending, but I may have missed what happened to one of the characters after his return.
