really liked it
Read from June 16 to July 26, 2010

Loving this one. Lots of little short stories, disguised as chapters, though each could stand on its own. It's a tough read because of the various senses in which "man crazy" is evoked, including various types of harmful-to-women crazy men, but well worth the pain so far.


This is a tough one to read, mostly because all of the men in it are pretty reprehensible. But the language is so brutally beautiful, I can't stop.

-------------------------- just got tougher to read. But well worth it. I love it when Oates is on her game in this way, but I will need to take a break before I read the next one I have of hers...sometimes the brutally honest writing needs some time to settle.
