Joyce Carol OatesAn articulate witness to the most stubborn and intractable truths of our time, a memorable voice.
—The New York Times Book Review
In this Conradian masterpiece of American innocence and evil set in the fictional Central American country of Boca Grande, two American women face the harsh realities, political and personal, of living on the edge in a land with an uncertain future. Writing with her signature telegraphic swiftness, the author creates a terrifying commentary on an age of conscienceless authority.

One of the finest works by one of our greatest writers. An essential text for admirers of flawless prose down to the syllabic level.

I thought this was The Book of Common Prayer ... it turns out that it is A Book of Common Prayer. Beware, this is not THE Book of Common Prayer published by the Episcopal Church, but rather a novel by a writer I do not know.
