Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0452280206, Paperback)Successful author and famous intellectual Marya Knauer did not always occupy such a secure and comfortable position in life. Her memories of her childhood in Innisfail, New York are by turns romantic and traumatic. The early violent death of her father and abandonment by her mother have left her with a permanent sense of dislocation and loss. After decades apart, Marya becomes determined to find the mother who gave her away. In searching for her past, Marya changes her present life more than she could ever have imagined. Vividly evoking the natural beauty of rural upstate New York, and the complex emotions of a woman artist, Marya: A Life is one of Joyce Carol Oates's most deeply personal and fully-realized novels.

Marya was a survivor. From the brutal lessons of an abandoned childhood to the darker, more complicated games of the adult world, she rose up to perilous heights of fame. This is her story. "Brilliant ... thrillingly alive ... stunning!"--Chicago Tribune.
