Joyce Carol Oates ´ 7 READ

Joyce Carol Oates’s latest novel is a vivid exploration of race psychological trauma class warfare grief and eventual healing as well as an intimate family novel in the tradition of the author’s bestselling We Were the Mulvaneys. Note This is one of the longest reviews I have written in a while It is a plea for the benefits of reading outside one s comfort zone I hope you understand I think it is safe to say that readers are divided into devoted fans of Joyce Carol Oates and those who would not read her ever Here is how I became fanI first read her one hot month in 1988 when I was stranded in Los Angeles due to a snafu in a training program I was attending My accommodations were located across the street from a used bookstore with racks out on the sidewalk where battered paperbacks sold for a uarterI picked up Marya A Life only two years after its publication and already a 25 cent paperback I lay on my bed in a sweltering room and read about Marya s terrible gritty life having really no idea what I was reading It was the most disturbing thing I had ever read Not surprising because in those days I usually read trashy bestsellersBy 1992 I was living permanently in LA and had embarked on an effort to branch out in my reading I read Joyce Carol Oates s first novel With Shuddering Fall It was pretty gritty too Her characters were fairly unrecognizable to me Generally lower class whites not mainstream in any way violent and sometimes outright crazy My mother told me she had tried reading Oates but found her books weirdI persevered still eager in those days to rebel against my mother I have read her first nine novels and some early short stories then dropped her for several years In 2013 I started again reading whatever was her latest book She is still weird in her own uniue way so I can only conclude that I have changed as a reader I now count myself among her dedicated fans I have not read the recent bestsellers How To Be An Antiracist or White Fragility but I would say that Night Sleep Death The Stars is JCO s answer to such conundrums from a literary viewpoint The title is the last line of a Walt Whitman poem A Clear Midnight The novel is an intimate family tale concerning a white family in upstate New York The father a much loved and well to do man in his community pulls off the road one evening to intervene in what appears to be a scene of police harassment against a Black man In the ensuing debacle John Earle McClaren is beaten tasered and left by the police on the side of the road where he suffers a massive stroke The dark skinned man being harassed is taken into custodyMcClaren dies in the hospital from a staph infection a couple weeks later By that time in the story his wife and five grown offspring have been introduced It is clear they are not exactly the close and happy family they are perceived to be by the communityThe novel is long but I read it uickly not wanting to look away The family majorly fractures after the patriarch s death but she shows us the hairline fractures present from the beginning though they had been held in stasis in almost a hostage situation by John Earle McClaren His control was not ever physically brutal but it was absolute Not his wife nor any one of his children were allowed to be who they really were nor to think for themselvesJCO has always appeared to be prescient in her novels She wrote this one a year before the recent explosion of the Black Lives Matter movement Listening to an interview with her about writing this novel I realized again how attuned she is to the evils and upheavals of American culture At this point in her life she is a privileged white woman but she came up in near poverty in the midst of small town violence A favorite childhood book of hers was Alice In Wonderland She has written at least 56 novels I feel her writing has become somewhat accessible over the years but has never lost that bite penetrating the human heart with all of its strengths and weaknesses its fears and joys In her novels I have found everyone I ve ever known the ones I was afraid to know and myself I most loved Jessalyn McClaren the widow of John and the mother of those five children Her grief and her emergence from it her tentative forays into life as her true self are all so meticulously shown Somehow we white people get to know ourselves through the book our ridiculous assumptions about others our reluctance to move outside our perceived safety zones our ill informed prejudices about people and our inherent fragility as the most powerful race on earth no matter what our political stances areAll of that is in Night Sleep Death The Stars Read it at your own risk The Test is a vivid exploration of race psychological trauma class warfare grief and eventual healing as well as an Reality is

    In person Joyce Carol Oates JCO has an air almost of detachment looking over your shoulder as if at something or someone interesting over there But in her writing she displays a deep well of empathy in her characters Over her prodigious career she has created enough characters to populate a small town possibly a city and from my recollection
