Rape : A Love Story

Author(s): Joyce Carol Oates

fiction a-z

Rape: A Love Story begins with what is almost unspeakable. It tells of the brutality and cowardice that overtakes the city of Niagara Falls in the aftermath of an attack on a woman and her young daughter. A diamond-hard dissection of modern mores, it is also the tale of Teena and Bethie's silent champion - a man who knows the meaning of justice. And love. First published 2003.
