With an unflinching eye, Oates charts the surprising ways in which the world we think we know can unexpectedly reveal its darker contours. From the title story, which maps the friendship between two beautiful and mysteriously doomed young women in 1940s Los Angeles -- Elizabeth Short, known as the "Black Dahlia," victim of a long-unsolved and particularly brutal murder, and her roommate Norma Jeane Baker, soon to become Marilyn Monroe -- to the tale of the wife of a well-to-do businessman who is ravishedby, and elopes with, a lover who is not what he seems. Black Dahlia & White Rose explores the commingling of sexual love and violence, the tumult of family life, and resonates with Oates' predilection for dark humor and her gift for voice.

display_description In this work the author offers a collection of 11 previously uncollected stories, including a title piece that tracks the friendship between Elizabeth Short, famously known as the Black Dahlia, the victim of a markedly brutal murder in 1940s Los Angeles that remains unsolved, and her roommate, Norma Jeane Baker who became Marilyn Monroe. In each of these stories the author explores the menace that lurks at the edge of and intrudes upon even the seemingly safest of lives and maps the transformational cost of such instrusions.
