“Sourland”, a New Collection by Joyce Carol Oates

Review: ‘Sourland’ By Joyce Carol Oates

Fifteen new stories and the title novella make up nearly four hundred pages of obsessive focus on the plight of naïve young female adolescents and newly bereaved women in a world of pain, suffering, loss, and dangerous affections.
