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.

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.
