NIGHT-SIDE: EIGHTEEN TALES. New York: The Vanguard Press, Inc., . Octavo, cloth. First edition. "Eighteen stories first published in mainstream literary journals, all remarkable for their psychologically acute explorations of the dark side of ordinary experience ... Oates rivals Flannery O'Connor in her ability to bring grotesque characters vividly to life, and Shirley Jackson in her skill at evoking the perversity of everyday human nature. The stories in NIGHT-SIDE are provocative and haunting for their depiction of characters for whom alienation and solipsism are an unavoidable response to life." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 6-291. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#138225).
