  • A Journey to Tragedy

    This book was very difficult to read. Not because of the writing, which is phenomenal, but because we already know the ending. Joyce Carol Oates takes us on a literary journey from babyhood through to the end with a flawless, relentless depiction of the mind within the body that embarked on this particular journey. It is beyond sad to bear witness to the reactions and defenses of a mind molded by fear, uncertainty, unpredictability and unreliability that resulted in a young woman who became her own worst enemy and basically orchestrated her own downfall. With her background, falling prey to the Hollywood system of male dominance of the time seemed inevitable. The failure of The Blonde’s various coping mechanisms were not surprising, nor was it surprising that this also sabotaged her personal relationships resulting in yet more reinforcement for self-sabotage. Tragic as it is, I would recommend this to any fearless reader who is interested in the psychology of mind that can propel a soul through life from innocence to a tragic end.

    Thanks for your feedback!
