Brando. Dean. John Reddy Heart is right up there among them - at least in the eyes of the residents of Willowsville, New York.
The handsome young heart-throb begins his bad-boy career at sixteen, the night that a man is murdered in his mother's house.
Was John Reddy protecting her from rape or covering up her crime, or is he actually innocent?
It may not matter - the minute the manhunt starts, the second the sensational trial begins, John Reddy Heart is front-page news, celebrated in song, and well on his way to becoming a small town's obsession.
The always inventive Oates has struck upon a truly innovative way to tell this uniquely American story.
