"Special feature! This e-book edition contains ""Dark Work, "" our exclusive interview with Joyce Carol Oates. In this collection of twenty-one unforgettable stories, Joyce Carol Oates explores the mysterious private lives of men and women with vivid, unsparing precision and sympathy. By turns interlocutor and interpreter, magician and realist, she dissects the psyches of ordinary people and their potential for good and evil with chilling understatement and lasting power. In ""Faithless, "" two adult sisters recall their mother's disappearance when they were children. In ""Ugly, "" a bitterly angry young woman defines herself as ugly as a way of making herself invulnerable to hurt and in so doing hurts others. In ""Lover, "" a beautiful young woman locked into an obsessive love affair seeks her revenge in a bizarre, violent manner. In ""Gunlove, "" a woman in thrall to a powerful erotic fetishism recounts in brief, deadpan vignettes a history of her relations with firearms. Intense and provocative, Faithless is a startling look into the heart of contemporary America from the modern master of the short story. "
