We Were the Mulvaneys af Joyce Carol Oates (1996)

  1. 10
    A Good House af Bonnie Burnard (Nickelini)
    Nickelini: Both books are set in small towns and cover the story of one family over many years. Oates's book is darker and more satirical; the characters in Burnard's book are more likeable and believable.

    My Sunshine Away af M.O. Walsh (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: These literary coming-of-age novels each hauntingly explore the repercussions of a rape on small communities. A large family falls apart in We Were the Mulvaneys, while My Sunshine Away portrays the residents of a single street.

LOL one reviewer asked who would want to hear, in great detail, about the guy that drove Marianne to a funeral? Me!!!!!

Many other reviewers complained that it takes over 100 pages to get to the big event that broke the Mulvaneys apart. Not me. I wouldn't care if it took 200 pages. I wanted more, more, more. JCO can't give me enough detail.

Having come from a small family, I love reading about large families who have a lot of fun times together. It's so awful how one horrible event can break a family like the Mulvaneys. I was hanging on every word, waiting to see how each one would get through it, or not. Sigh. ( )

This is another favorite of mine. The characters are so real, and although flawed, genuinely good. The family relationships ring true. The plot is composed of a 1000 tiny moments that flow together seamlessly. Oats captures perfectly the tenor of daily life as an average family navigates life's highs and lows, making mistakes but also learning along the way. ( )

> Nous étions les Mulvaney, par Joyce Carol Oates
Joyce Carol Oates fustige l'Amérique puritaine où triomphe le paraître, et où les rumeurs mensongères sont plus fortes que la vérité.
Dans l'Amérique rurale des années 1970, les Mulvaney voient la vie en rose. Jusqu'à cette nuit de la Saint-Valentin où leur fille, Marianne, se fait violer par un copain passablement éméché, un drame qui va entraîner le naufrage de cette famille apparemment irréprochable : craignant le qu'en-dira-t-on, accablés par la honte et la culpabilité, les Mulvaney n'auront que leur lâcheté à offrir à leur fille désemparée... A travers eux, Joyce Carol Oates fustige l'Amérique puritaine où triomphe le paraître, et où les rumeurs mensongères sont plus fortes que la vérité. Un des romans les plus impitoyables de la grande dame des lettres américaines. --L'Express

It's a very slow, sometimes almost tedious read, but it's so remarkably detailed in how it builds up the characters. I think it sags for a while after about the midpoint, and for all that the characters are portrayed complexly, their actions aren't always all that believable to me. The book deals very much in appearances, and the story is told through the voice of a narrator who was young for much of the story's crisis and is retelling it at a distance, having in fact not been present for most of the specific events whose reality rings a bit false for me, so maybe Oates is doing something here with the reliability of the narrator, and these things that are registering for me as lapses in reality are intentional. In any case, it's a nice piece of writing, basically exactly the sort of stuff that Franzen tries to write (in fact, I feel like Freedom maybe owes a little something to this book), but so much better in Oates's hands.

This was a five-star book, the best of her books I'd read, until I got to the epilogue. Then, unfortunately, the grim but realistic tone the author had established and hewed to throughout disappeared. The pollyanna ending also undid the believability of certain major characters. ( )

In her gracefully sprawling new novel, Joyce Carol Oates delivers a modern family tragedy with a theme as painfully primal as “Oedipus Rex.”

What keeps us coming back to Oates Country is something stronger and spookier: her uncanny gift of making the page a window, with something happening on the other side that we'd swear was life itself.

I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love,
If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.

You will hardly know who I am or what I mean,
But I shall be good health to you nevertheless,
And filter and fibre your blood.

Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged.
Missing me one place search another,
I stop some where waiting for you.

from Walt Whitman, Song of Myself
