The Mulvaneys of High Point Farm in Mt Ephraim New York are a large and fortunate clan blessed with good looks abundant charisma and boundless promise But over the twenty five year span of this ambitious novel the Mulvaneys will slide almost imperceptibly at first from the pinnacle of happiness transformed by the vagaries of fate into a scattered collection of lost and lonely souls It is the youngest son Judd now an adult who attempts to piece together the fragments of the Mulvaneys former glory seeking to uncover and understand the secret violation that occasioned the family s tragic downfall Each of the Mulvaneys endures some form of exile physical or spiritual but in the end they find a way to bridge the chasms that have opened up among them reuniting in the spirit of love and healing, The time is the s The place is a blue collar town in upstate New York where five high school girls are joined in a gang dedicated to pride power and vengeance on a world they never made a world that seems made to denigrate and destroy them br br Foxfire is Joyce Carol Oates strongest and most unsparing novel yet an often engrossing often shocking evocation of female rage gallantry and grit Here then are the Foxfire chronicles the secret history of a sisterhood of blood a haven from a world of lechers and oppressors marked by a liberating fury that burns too hot to last br br It is the story of Maddy Monkey who writes it of Goldie whose womanly body masks a fierce explosive temper of Lana with her Marilyn Monroe hair and packs of Chesterfields of timid Rita whose humiliation leads to the first act of Foxfire revenge Above all it is the story of Legs Sadovsky with her lean on the edge icy beauty whose nerve muscle hate and hurt make her the spark of Foxfire its guiding spirit its burning core At once brutal and lyrical this is a careening joyride of a novel charged with outlaw energy and lit by intense emotion br br The story moves over the years from the first eruption of adolescent anger at sexual abuse to a shared life financed by luring predatory men into traps baited with sex But then the gang s very success leads to disaster as Foxfire makes a last tragic stand against a society intent on swallowing it up Yet amid scenes of violence sexual abuse exploitation and vengeance lies this novel s greatest power the exquisite astonishing rendering of the bonds that link the girls of Foxfire together especially that between Maddy the teller ofthe tale and Legs whose quintessential strength and bedrock bravery make her one of the most vivid and vital heroines in modern fiction, No description available, In the Schwarts an immigrant family desperate to escape Nazi Germany settle in a small town in upstate New York where the father a former high school teacher is demeaned by the only job he can get gravedigger and cemetery caretaker After local prejudice and the family s own emotional frailty result in unspeakable tragedy the gravedigger s daughter Rebecca begins her astonishing pilgrimage into America an odyssey of erotic risk and imaginative daring ingenious self invention and in the end a bittersweet but very American triumph You are born here they will not hurt you so the gravedigger has predicted for his daughter which will turn out to be true br br In i The Gravedigger s Daughter i Oates has created a masterpiece of domestic yet mythic realism at once emotionally engaging and intellectually provocative an intimately observed testimony to the resilience of the individual to set beside such predecessors as i The Falls i i Blonde i and i We Were the Mulvaneys i
