LStark and penetrating 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 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 no two are alike I ve been reading her for over 40 years and given the amount of novels and short stories that have flowed from her it was still amazing to read Widow her account of her life after the death of her first husband of her profound grief and depiction of a full life spent away from the keyboard When does she find the time to produce such a body of work Now in her 80 s she takes for her title a line from a poem by Walt Whitman when does she have time to read and presents an 800 page masterwork on grief and its effect on a widow and her five adult children Each person is so clearly realized and given such a potent inner life each child thinks they know what s best for the Mom they remember as an adjunct to their beloved father who wasn t such a saint after all In other hands this material could feel bloated and padded but JCO has managed to make every page necessary and while I usually don t find novels of such length intriguing I found this one reuired every step
