Men Beware! In this collection of 9 short stories from Joyce Carol Oates, one of America’s most eminent authors, she explores why size and strength count for nothing when you have guile, cunning and passion to name but three. Each story is beautifully written and constructed just waiting to be devoured.
Contains tales, tales in which women are confronted by the evil around them and surprised by the evil they find within themselves. This book demonstrates why the females of the species - be they six-year-old girls, seemingly devoted wives, or ageing mothers - are by nature more deadly than the males.
