More powerful than any psychic, writer Joyce Carol Oates channels the voices of many different women -- some hilarious, some touching, some terrifying -- in I Stand Before You Naked
. This almost supernatural sympathy is just one reason why Oates is a perennial favorite for the Nobel Prize in Literature. In I Stand Before You Naked
her remarkable talent results in a dazzling piece of theater, one which throws a sharp spotlight on "women oppressed by their husbands, their lovers, and themselves." Ten powerful stories incorporate the most pressing issues of contemporary society, from sexual abuse to insanity. But beyond trendy topics, this extraordinary collection of dramatic monologues digs deep into universal themes -- aging, death, love and hope -- to uncover something precious and totally unexpected.
