This was my first Oates book. I thought the book's plot was a bit implausible and unnecessarily festooned, but still interesting. Written in 2006 which is not that long ago, it still seems dated. It would have seemed dated at the time of publishing. Still, it left you with things to think about: the inescapability of white norms being the 'only' normal, how we all hide from accepting responsibility for failure.
