This book has a brevity that is stunning. It reminds me that stark writing is just as good as long-winded prose. Sometimes better. It takes you into the empty dark side of the 1960s. Joan Didion is masterful. Read it.

This is the most beautiful book I have ever read. It's a classic but I still think it deserves a shelf talker. It feelsl ike reading a poem. The language is lush and intoxicating.

If you think his is just another Joyce Carol Oates book, think again. Psychological, chilling, and at the same time beautifully written, I couldn't put it down. A must-read novella.

I am not usually one to read historical fiction, but since I grew up loving Carroll’s work I gave it a shot. It paints a vivid picture of its characters and makes you want to dive into the rabbit hole. For the romantically curious sort.
