Laura Laura said: " A really intense lyrical account of a violent love between a father and his son. One of the rare reads that understands domestic violence situations instead of merely pitying the characters. Worth reading for the language alone! "

Joyce Carol Oates
“We work in the dark—we do what we can—we give what we have. Our doubt is our passion, and our passion is our task. The rest is the madness of art.”
Joyce Carol Oates

Georges Bataille
“The need to go astray, to be destroyed, is an extremely private, distant, passionate, turbulent truth.”
Georges Bataille

Joyce Carol Oates
“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another's skin, another's voice, another's soul.”
Joyce Carol Oates
