About This Item

New York: HarperCollins / Ecco. 2017. Hardcover. First Edition (stated) / full number line. Interior unmarked. Spine straight and tight. Jacket clean and bright with light shelfwear. Half-inch tear to cover and jacket at top of rear hinge. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 752 pages.

In this striking novel, Joyce Carol Oates tells the story of two very different and yet intimately linked American families whose destinies are defined by their warring convictions. Luther Dunphy is an ardent Evangelical who believes he is carrying out God's will when he assassinates Augustus Voorhees, an abortion provider in his small Ohio town. Voorhees, the idealistic doctor who is killed, leaves behind a wife and children who are scarred and embittered by grief.
