    Who doesn t desire his father s deathFyodor DostoevskyI want to write a few words about this novel while it s fresh on my mind instead of moving it to the back of my review line A first point would be that Oates could have shown what she wanted to show the disintegration of a seemingly typical family in three hundred pages instead of four hun
