Description
The need for love-obsessive, self-destructive, unpredictable-takes us to forbidden places, as in the chilling world of Give Me Your Heart, a new collection of stories by the inimitable Joyce Carol Oates. In the suspenseful "Strip Poker," a reckless adolescent girl must find a way of turning the tables on a gathering of increasingly threatening young men-can she "outplay" them? In "Smother!" a young woman's nightmare memory of childhood brings trouble on her professor mother-which of them will win? In "Split/Brain" a woman who has blundered into a lethal situation confronts the possibility of saving herself-will she take it? In "The First Husband," a jealous man discovers that his wife seems to have lied about her first marriage, and exacts a cruel revenge, years after the fact. In ten razor-sharp stories, National Book Award winner Oates shows that the most deadly mysteries often begin at home. Narrated by Angela Brazil, Susan Boyce, Stephen R. Thorne, Rachael Warren, Parker Leventer, Fred Sullivan, Emily Woo Zeller, Matt Clevy, and Mauro Hantman.

        October 11, 2010
        The heart is a lonely hunter, and it also is vengeful, untrusting, and cruel, as Oates (The Female of the Species) proves in this fine collection of 10 tightly focused tales about love and its aftermath. In the epistolary title story, a young woman writing after many years to her alleged abuser, a biblical scholar, inspires sympathy at first, but a very different emotion by the end. Hidden snapshots propel a man into obsession about his wife's past in "The First Husband." The ambiguous memories of a woman with a history of drug and mental problems build to a crescendo in "Smother." A 13-year-old girl finds her resolve when she's the only female with a group of drunken, threatening men in "Strip Poker." A naïve college student's attempt to help a nine-year-old girl goes horribly wrong in "Bleeed." Each story shows the power of Oates's never-ending clear, clean prose.
