An ingenious, dystopian novel of one young womanâ€™s
resistance against the constraints of an oppressive society,
from the inventive imagination of Joyce Carol Oates
â€śTime travelâ€ť â€” and its hazardsâ€”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 â€” â€śWainscotia, Wisconsinâ€ťâ€”that
existed eighty years before. Cast adrift in time in this
idyllic Midwestern town she is set upon a course of
â€śrehabilitationâ€ťâ€”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
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 Oatesâ€™s most
unexpected novel so far.
