Welcome to this week’s First Readers’ Club giveaway! Enter your US address below for your chance to win an exclusive early copy of Joyce Carol Oates’ new novel, Hazards of Time Travel.
An ingenious, dystopian novel of one young woman’s resistance against the constraints of an oppressive society.
“Time travel”—and its hazards—are made literal in this astonishing new novel in which a recklessly idealistic girl dares to test the perimeters of her tightly controlled (future) world and is punished by being sent back in time to a region of North America—“Wainscotia, Wisconsin”—that existed eighty years before. Cast adrift in time in this idyllic Midwestern town she is set upon a course of “rehabilitation”—but cannot resist falling in love with a fellow exile and questioning the constrains of the Wainscotia world with results that are both devastating and liberating.
Arresting and visionary, Hazards of Time Travel is both a novel of harrowing discovery and an exquisitely wrought love story that may be Joyce Carol Oates’s most unexpected novel so far.
