Paperbacks: The Gravedigger's Daughter, by Joyce Carol Oates

Dickens meets the American dream in this tightly-packed family saga from the highly prolific Joyce Carol Oates.

Hazel Jones is a woman with a secret in a dark tale of brutality, escape and survival that starts with a family's immigration, fleeing the Nazis. Another step in Oates's progress towards the title of Great American Novelist.
