The bonds of family are tested in the wake of a profound tragedy, providing a look at the darker side of our society.
Night. Sleep. Death. The Stars. is a gripping examination of contemporary America through the prism of a family tragedy: when a powerful parent dies, each of his adult children reacts in startling and unexpected ways and his grieving widow in the most surprising way of all.
Stark and penetrating, Joyce Carol Oates’ latest novel is a vivid exploration of race, psychological trauma, class warfare, grief and eventual healing, as well as an intimate family novel in the tradition of the author’s best-selling We Were the Mulvaneys.
"The most consistently inventive, brilliant, curious and creative writer going." (Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl)
"Novelists such as John Updike, Philip Roth, Tom Wolfe and Norman Mailer slug it out for the title of the Great American Novelist. But maybe they’re wrong. Maybe, just maybe, the Great American Novelist is a woman." (The Herald)
"Oates is an inspired writer, and a formidable psychologist. She has a thrilling way of grasping an emotion, wasting no time and launching herself straight at the aching heart of the matter." (Independent)

Not quite thrilling but very entertaining
great portrait of a very American family consisting of children you will come to dislike (hate?) and a mom who is such a convincing mother that you want to take her in your arms as a remedy for her dark thoughts and partly awful children . as usual masterly believable drawn characters. it's not an exiting "plot" that really justify the length of the audio book but really just the deliberations of the characters in their quite ordinary lifes. the quality of the sound is not quite HD but the narrator is doing a great job!
