Their voices can run together a bit in Oates' stream-of-consciousness, but I wasn't especially bothered. The centra Narrative easing out of dense fog. The central story, beneath all the embellishment, is a fairly simple one of a lonely Childwold New York lonely ads man who finds himself infatuated self-destructively?Howe OK Wife Swapping
But it is convincing conveyed here, and what can I say, I'm a sucker for this kind of embellishment exactly the embellishment the other Childwold New York lonely ads here apparently hated and the prose is often beautiful. I wonder why this book seems to have fallen through the cracks. Perhaps Oates other work from this era is better -- or at least more approachable.
I bought this on a whim, purely on Childwold New York lonely ads basis of the eerie evocative title and the fact I've never read anything from Oates besides scattered more recent short stories, and I was not disappointed.
Feb 12, SmarterLilac rated it liked it. At times dull, at times restlessly experimental, this book is like a oYrk of Oates' lesser works—too much filler undermining an otherwise interesting premise and plot.

Another favourite writer, Stephen King proved this with his two novels ofYlrk Mercedes and Revival which were both stinkers. The premise of Childwold is very similar to Lolita.
I never had an issue with the subject matter.Adult Wants Nsa AR Bryant 72022

I was looking forward to seeing how JCO handled a similar premise. The biggest issue is that JCO uses a stream-of-consciousness style in Childwold. One of my least favourite narrative styles. I found Childwold very disjoined and confusing. I struggled to understand what was going on. Did Kesch have sex with Laney? Was it all a weird erotic dream? Childwold New York lonely ads
Stream-of-consciousness was very popular when Childwold was published. Either way, none of Childwold worked for me. Written in the 70s, in the self-conscious style that was popular then. The story is a Lolita-esque relationship between a barely teenaged girl and a shell-shocked veteran of the Vietnam war, seen through a fog of suggestion, fantasy, Bottom seeking hung top for nsa dream sequences.
It is very difficult to pick out exactly what happens, but it is clear that something does, based upon the reactions of the characters. Another of Oates' "Yewville" stories.

To that Childwold New York lonely ads ask if Oates considers herself a "child predator" for writing Childwold? Having read Lolita and Childwold, my answer is "no" but I genuinely wonder what Oates would say. I'm a die hard Oates fan, but I couldn't make it past the first ten pages of stream-of-consciousness rambling, almost entirely without actual events and context of any kind.
Maybe someday I will have the motivation to pick it up and try again.
