By Joyce Carol Oates. Per Henry Louis Gates Jr.'s blurb, Oates "explores in fiction what most of us only experienced through headlines some twenty-five years ago" -- namely, the Tawana Brawley case. Opinions vary on whether this particular daring experiment succeeded.
The hardcover in stock is a well-kept ex-library copy with the expected stamps and stickers inside; the pages are clean and tight, and the spine is straight. A great reading copy.
