Read full description of the books:
Daddy Love, aka Reverend Chester Cash, has for years abducted, tortured, and raped young boys. His latest victim is Robbie, now renamed 'Gideon,' and brainwashed into believing that he is Daddy Love's real son. Any time the boy resists or rebels he is met with punishment beyond his wildest nightmares. As Robbie grows older he begins to realize that the longer he is locked in the shackles of this demon, the greater chance he'll end up like Daddy Love's other 'sons' who were never heard from again. Somewhere within this tortured boy lies a spark of rebellion... and soon he will see just what lengths he must go to in order to have any chance at survival.
"After all these years, Joyce Carol Oates can still give me the creeps. Oates is a mind-reader who writes psychological horror stories about seriously disturbed minds, and it's hard to tear your eyes away from her grimly detailed portrait of "Daddy Love." But her insights into nice, ordinary people - the kind of people Robbie's parents used to be, before their son was stolen - are no less incisive. Oates has more knives to throw before bringing this harrowing tale to a close - but she saves the sharpest one for the very last page."
Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
"Wrenching, tightly written and focused... a grim examination of how humans cope with unspeakable physical and psychological pain. She illuminates the darkest corners and shows us the startled, troubled creatures hiding there, nursing their wounds, staring back at us, their kin."
"I haven't met a Joyce Carol Oates story or novel that I didn't like and "Daddy Love" is no exception."
"Haunting, terrifying, disturbing."
"Joyce Carol Oates, author of dozens of grim novels, knows the dark side of life better than most and explores it here in a lean and disturbing tale that reverberates after its ending."
"Oates makes us squirm as she forces us to see some of the action through Love's twisted and warped perspective."
"This unsettling tale showcases Oates's masterful storytelling."
"An urgently compelling and drastically revealing study of evil, habitual terror, and survival."
"Daddy Love" is a book not to be taken lightly... [it] pushes us to confront what lurks behind the front door."
New York Journal of Books
"Joyce Carol Oates's latest book is a horror. As in horror story, frightening, alarmingly realistic. The monsters in "Daddy Love" are people, not fantastical creatures from the deep"
