The Doll-Master and Other Tales of Terror - Joyce Carol Oates - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Doll-Master:

     Joyce's thrillingly dark tales.

My favorite Joyce Carol Oates quote from the book:

"For humankind was the most ravenous and pitiless predator."

Questions I pondered while reading The Doll-Master:

    Do you ever trust your husband if you were once the "other woman"?

    Should you ever take cappuccino from strangers?

My Thoughts about The Doll Master:

   Creepy ambiguity.

   Creepy carriage house.

   Creepy frothy coffee drink.
