Joyce Carol Oates has been hailed as America’s foremost woman of letters. She is at her best in American Appetites, weaving a masterful tale of personal entanglements, fatal decisions, and courtroom drama. Ian and Glynnis McCullough, intelligent, professional and successful, are the envy of their affluent friends. But suddenly, an unexpected plea for help and a cancelled check send their tranquility spinning out of control.
