    Mit liv som rotte Hvilket valg er mest rigtigt: loyalitet over for familien eller loyalitet over for sandheden?    Mit liv som rotte følger Violet Rue Kerrigan, en ung kvinde, der ser tilbage på sit liv i eksil fra sin familie, efter at hun i en alder af tolv har aflagt vidnesbyrd om et racerelateret mord på en sort, amerikansk dreng begået af hendes ældre brødre.   Med uhyggelig præcision opruller Mit liv som rotte et liv i eksil – forvist fra forældre, søskende og kirken; et liv der tvinger Violet til at opbygge sin egen identitet, til at bryde ud af den tryghed og fortryllelse som dét at være en del af en familie giver. Kan Violet finde vej ud af sit livslange eksil som ”rotten” og komme helskindet ud på den anden side?   Mit liv som rotte er en tankevækkende roman om familie, loyalitet, racisme, identitet, seksualitet og svigt. ”Denne roman vil glæde Oates’ trofaste fans og sikre hende nye.” - Publishers Weekly Joyce Carol Oates er siden sin debut i 1963 blevet hædret med et væld af priser og nomineringer.

    From one of our most accomplished storytellers, an extraordinary and arresting novel about a women’s asylum in the nineteenth century, and a terrifying doctor who wants to change the worldIn this harrowing story based on authentic historical documents, we follow the career of Dr. Silas Weir, “Father of Gyno-Psychiatry,” as he ascends from professional anonymity to national renown. Humiliated by a procedure gone terribly wrong, Weir is forced to take a position at the New Jersey Asylum for Female Lunatics, where he reigns. There, he is allowed to continue his practice, unchecked for decades, making a name for himself by focusing on women who have been neglected by the state—women he subjects to the most grotesque modes of experimentation. As he begins to establish himself as a pioneer of nineteenth-century surgery, Weir’s ambition is fueled by his obsessive fascination with a young Irish indentured servant named Brigit, who becomes not only Weir’s primary experimental subject, but also the agent of his destruction.Narrated by Silas Weir’s eldest son, who has repudiated his father’s brutal legacy, Butcher is a unique blend of fiction and fact, a nightmare voyage through the darkest regions of the American psyche conjoined, in its startling conclusion, with unexpected romance. Once again, Joyce Carol Oates has written a spellbinding novel confirming her position as one of our celebrated American visionaries of the imagination.
