American Appetites is a novel by Joyce Carol Oates, © Harper & Row 1989
feeling your Oates – well cast, Katie:
I write, as you note on American Appetites,
of running, punctuating, preying and praying to be elevated,
out of control
Biblia (brave little books) —
a brave little lamb
or the great I Am
or a passing
It’s interesting to me that this was published in the end of the eighties beginning nineties. It seems like the theme is something that would have come out of a 1950s era, or our current time, which I think tends towards more disillusionment. Is there that sense in the book?
