By Joyce Carol Oates

Lilla himlafågelär en "klassisk Oates" - en tidlös roman om våld och erotisk besatthet, skuld och längtan efter försoning.

Nästan genast riktas polisens uppmärksamhet mot mannen hon nyligen har separerat ifrån - Aarons a long way. Snart börjar det också gå rykten om att Zoe hade en älskare, en reward tvåbarnsfar, som kan ha varit inblandad i dådet.

Mitt i det svårlösta och utdragna drama som följer står två barn, så småningom unga vuxna, som också utgör romanens berättarröster: den mördade kvinnans son Aaron och älskarens dotter Krista. below hela sin uppväxt hör de talas om varandra. Krista börjar ta omvägar runt Aarons hus, smyger sig så nära hon bara vågar. Aaron blänger på Krista i skolan, males kan inte sluta tänka på henne. De rör sig i allt snävare cirklar kring varandra och i tonåren övergår nyfikenheten i ömsesidig besatthet. Samtidigt håller båda quickly vid tron att den andras a long way är den som är skyldig until mordet.

Joyce Carol Oates har skrivit en mörk, romantisk och fängslande berättelse som utspelar sig i samma mentala och geografiska landskap som Det var vi som var Mulvaneys och Dödgrävarens dotter.

"Det här är en tragedi av klassiskt slag . ardour och våld är oupplösligt och traumatiskt sammanflätade. Oates förskönar inte detta, i stället söker hon sjukdomens rötter för att visa hur besatthet kan urarta."
New York occasions ebook Review

"Detta är en mäktig roman. Oates känsla för livet i utkanten med dess bittra blandning av alkoholism, självmord, drogmissbruk, otrohet och mord är vassare än någonsin. I Sparta har hon uppfunnit ett fiktivt universum som kan mäta sig med Faulkners Yoknapatawpha County eller Cheevers Shady Hill."
