We Were the Mulvaneys (Oprah's Book Club) - Joyce Carol Oates This was a well-written book. But I just couldn't really buy the idea of this perfect American family completely falling apart when the daughter was raped. Rape is sadly not uncommon, and women and their families manage to deal with it every day--so what was so fundamentally wrong with this family that all of them went batshit insane? I don't know. It was weird. Oates does write well though.
