Brando. Dean. John Reddy Heart is right up there among them - at least in the eyes of the residents of Willowsville, New York. The handsome young heart-throb begins his bad-boy career at sixteen, the night that a man is murdered in his mother's house. Was John Reddy protecting her from rape or covering up her crime, or is he actually innocent? It may not matter - the minute the manhunt starts, the second the sensational trial begins, John Reddy Heart is front-page news, celebrated in song, and well on his way to becoming a small town's obsession.
The always inventive Oates has struck upon a truly innovative way to tell this uniquely American story.

MEDIA REVIEWS
She has the courage to choose great themes and the ability to carry them off. What is more she has the quality of high moral seriousness * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
What keeps us coming back to Oates Country is her uncanny gift of making the page a window, with something happening on the other side that we'd swear was life itself * NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW *
She is a sort of female Faulkner, doing for her neck of the woods what Faulkner did for his. A prolific and distinctive talent * GUARDIAN *
Joyce Carol Oates is a writer who always takes your breath away, and BROKE HEART BLUES is typically devastating, complex and subtle * MAIL ON SUNDAY *
