Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Anellia" is a young student who, though gifted with a penetrating intelligence, is drastically inclined to obsession. Funny, mordant, and compulsive, she falls passionately in love with a brilliant yet elusive black philosophy student. But she is tested most severely by a figure out of her past she'd long believed dead.

Astonishingly intimate and unsparing, and pitiless in exposing the follies of the time, I'll Take You There is a dramatic revelation of the risks—and curious rewards—of the obsessive personality as well as a testament to the stubborn strength of a certain type of contemporary female intellectual.

Synopsis:

In her bewitching 30th novel, Oates returns again to neurotic female post-adolescence. With deftly cast philosophical meditations--on love, death, identity, the body--this is a portrait of a woman surprised to discover strength in simply enduring.
