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 instances e-book 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."
