(From the publisher):
A young wife is home alone when the phone rings in "So Help Me God." Is the strange voice flirting with her from the other end of the line her jealous husband laying a trap, or a stranger who knows entirely too much about her? In "Madison at Guignol" an unhappy fashionista discovers a secret door inside her favorite clothing store and insists the staff let her enter. But even her fevered imagination cannot anticipate the horror they have been hiding from her. In these and other gripping and disturbing tales, Joyce Carol Oates demonstrates why the females of the speciesóbe they six-year-old girls, seemingly devoted wives, or aging mothersóare by nature more deadly than the males.
