LITTLE BIRD OF HEAVEN by Joyce Carol Oates

LITTLE BIRD OF HEAVEN is inimitably Oates. It has all her signatures – -the stylization of her writing, the focus on family narrative as destiny, and the mixture of pain and love. The stylized writing in this book is more pronounced than in some of her others. She repeats some things multiple times for emphasis and for varied affect. Initially, this bothered me but as the book progressed, I was so caught up in the narrative that nothing could deter me from wanting to turn to the next page.
