A collection of darkly compelling tales from the unique imagination of Joyce Carol Oates.

A young professor is convinced she's being followed, but when she confronts her shadow all is not as it seems...

A promising student attempts to save her brother from his descent into madness, but finds there may be more to his world than hers...

An elderly nun is found dead in her care home, but was it old age or dark secrets that killed her...

These biting and beautiful stories force us to confront, one by one, the demons within.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'These 'tales of darkness and dread' won't put you to sleep, but they'll give you more interesting nightmares' New York Review of Books.
'A writer of extraordinary strengths' Guardian.
'If the phrase 'woman of letters' existed, Joyce Carol Oates would be, foremost in this country, entitled to it' John Updike.
'Oates perfectly captures the atmosphere of fear and well-meaning misunderstanding. And I loved 'The Last Man of Letters' a brutally funny portrait of a ghastly old literary celebrity heading for his comeuppance' The Times.
