Présentation de l'éditeur

A deeply intimate psychological portrait of a young woman's tragic childhood, her reinvention as a successful young artist in the literary circles of 1950s New York City, and her struggle to understand and overcome the trauma of her past.

Growing up in the confines of Innisfail, a bleak town in upstate New York, bright and curious Marya endures abandonment, betrayal, and loneliness. A college scholarship offers escape, taking her to New York City, where she makes a name for herself in academic and literary circles. But success cannot overcome the damage of her childhood, pain that haunts Marya’s personal, professional, and romantic relationships, and has left her unmoored.

Psychologically nuanced, rich in insight and emotional complexity, told with the unsettling power of Joyce Carol Oates’s gothic novels, Marya: A Life is an intense look into the psyche of a young woman and an illuminating exploration of how the past reverberates throughout our lives.

Quatrième de couverture

Marya Knauer is a famous author and member of the intellectual elite. She is, by turns, admired, envied, and resented. She is also a woman haunted. Haunted by early memories of violence and abandonment. Haunted by painful feelings of longing and loss. Now Marya is about to embark on a search for her past—and for the mother who gave her away more than a quarter of a century before.... Vividly evoking the beauty of rural New York, the shattered reflections of childhood, and the complex emotions of a female artist, Marya: A Life is one of Joyce Carol Oates's most deeply personal and brilliantly observed novels.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 True to form, the last sentence came through. 17 janvier 2002
Par Karen A. Lawson - Publié sur Amazon.com
I read this book and couldn't help thinking that I was just "hearing" an account of someone's life. I felt as if I was missing something which I was. And it came out in the last sentence of this amazing and I don't know how she does it book by Joyce Carol Oates. Between "Them", "Do With Me What You Will". "You Must Remember This", and Short Stories written by this woman, I don't know how she knows, how can she get into "our" lives, "our" minds, "our" thoughts, and write so knowingly and correctly about life with such feeling and understanding, I'll never comprehend, just wish if only I had the insight and ability she has. A friend years ago said this book was written as if about my personal family and knowledge she had about our life, but this book was everyone's story, no one could not relate. Again, I thank Joyce Carol Oates for her knowing. I am sure she would understand the previous sentence.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Dark, Mysterious and Bizarre Side of Human Nature 7 mai 2009
Par Fairbanks Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
The atmosphere in this book is similar to that in other of Oates' novels - - it borders on Gothic Modern.

The protagonist is a brilliant, somewhat bizarre loner, a survivor of a dysfunctional family. Her life is spent in proud, purposeful separateness. This becomes so natural for her that the reader does not know if other possibilities or options exist.

There is always the threat of a hurricane of emotions behind the facade of calm. It is always understated but we know that only the surface emotions are portrayed. The protagonist shays she's never cried because she's afraid that if she does she will never stop.

I love the work of this author. This book will not disappoint if you enjoy the dark, mysterious and bizarre side of human nature. Oates gets this just right.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good but Oates has done better 28 juin 2002
Par Sunnye Tiedemann - Publié sur Amazon.com
It was Virginia Woolf who decried the lack of literature about the lives of the masses, the everyday folk: "All these infinitely obscure lives remain to be recorded," she said. Of course, she didn't promise to read them!
In MARYA, A LIFE, Oates attempts to fill that void. Marya is a portrait of a modern woman from a bewildered childhood to a womanhood that commands admiration, respect and love. She is a loner, bright and different from the people around her. She strives for self understanding and fulfillment.
Joyce Carol Oates is a meticulous storyteller and a vivid writer. I wonder if this is autobiographical. If so, the Woolf reference becomes irrelevant. Oates is definitely ordinary folk -- she is one of the finest and most recognized writers on the contemporary American literary scene.
But if you're in the mood for a book about a woman growing up and "making it" on her own, you'll enjoy this one.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Who wants to read about a neurotic selfish woman 15 mai 2014
Par ron - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Joyce Carol Oates most times is a gifted writer. This novel appears to be an indulgence in intellectual narcissism which includes, of course, the usual name dropping of classical literature. JCO also has the tendency to use long drawn out sentences which end sometimes with a stupid question mark or a contradiction. Marya has no friends but is captain of the basketball team. Whatever people she hangs out with, she doesn't really like. Her lovers are old and married but they are literary geniuses and odd like herself. It was hard to get through this boring book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gripping story, beautifully written 22 août 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I've always enjoyed Joyce Carol Oates writing style whether in contemporary or past history settings. 'Marya' is an incredibly strong women to have been able to overcome a brutal childhood. Her keen intellect was key to her academic successes. However, the scars of her upbringing keep her from forming stable relationships with others. Moral: you never really overcome your roots.
