9780062095626 â€œOates is just a fearless writer...with her brave heart and her impossibly lush and dead-on imaginative powers.â€ â€”Los Angeles Times Â â€œ[An] extraordinarily intense, racking, and resonant novel.â€ â€”Booklist (starred review) One of the most acclaimed writers in the world today, the inimitable Joyce Carol Oates follows up her searing, New York Times bestselling memoir, A Widowâ€™s Story, with an extraordinary new work of fiction. Mudwoman is a riveting psychological thriller, taut with dark suspense, that explores the high price of repression in the life of a respected university president teetering on the precipice of a nervous breakdown. Like Daphne DuMaurierâ€™s gothic masterwork, Rebecca, and the classic ghost story, The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James, Oatesâ€™s Mudwoman is a chilling page-turner that hinges on the power of the imagination and the blurry lines between the real and the inventedâ€”and it stands tall among the authorâ€™s most powerful and beloved works, including The Falls, The Gravediggerâ€™s Daughter, and We Were the Mulvaneys.
