I'm not a fan of short stories. Or crime stories. But I love Joyce Carol Oates and therefore had to read her latest book. Anyway, I enjoyed it. The stories are very different, different outcomes, none of them very nice, though. A lot of mother-son problems. I don't have those kind of problems but - as a mother of two teenage sons - could relate to a lot of them.
