Michael, the father, grows into a tragic figure in the second half of the book, although we certainly feel sorry for him when he realizes the entire community he respects would rather defend his daughter’s rapist than her. After a car accident which he survives, but which does serious injury to his fiancée, who is riding with him, Mike Jr.

Years later, when Zach is away at the state university at Binghamton studying business administration, he comes home for spring break and is abducted outside a bar by Patrick Mulvaney. While she was teaching at the University of Detroit, one of her short stories was published in the annual Best American Short Stories anthology, reinforcing her commitment to writing. When this shift occurs, the group no longer coheres, and individuals disperse literally or insulate themselves in other ways.In spite of the travails of the Mulvaney family, Corinne, the mother, continues to hold on to the hope that things will eventually be set aright again.

The book's epilogue, set some years later, might be seen as the author's way of pasting a happy ending onto an unhappy story, but it actually is necessary for telling readers the results of the family's struggles. By now it's become trite to exclaim at the length of Oates' books, or at the sheer abundance of them. The father has moved out of the center and is a family figure among others, unexceptionally mortal and fallible.He is a senior, the same age as Patrick and a year older than Marianne, when she catches his eye at the Valentine's dance, and he offers to drive her home when her date has to leave early. I really don't know another place online like TikTok that can make a creator grow at the rate that it does.
