Description:
The 'woman in the window' in Edward Hopper's classic painting is beautiful, young, nude, and (seemingly) lost in melancholy contemplation by a window - perhaps abandoned by her lover; in Joyce Carol Oates's enthralling re-imagining, the woman is all of these but also alert to her situation, not at all passive but prepared to exact an unexpected revenge against one who has wronged her. In the stories of 'Beautiful Days', we are allowed access into the most secret, intimate, and unacknowledged interior lives of persons very like ourselves, who do not take refuge in passivity but assert themselves in acts of bold and sometimes irrevocable defiance.
