I’m reading “The Man Without A Shadow”. This is one of the books that Joyce Carol Oates signed for me. It is about a man who suffers from permanent amnesia after an illness but remembers everything prior to the illness. He seems to be living in his own world and is unaffected by his amnesia but for the young research assistant in a memory lab, his world becomes hers. I’ve just begun to read this odd story but just like all the other Oates books I have read, I am already intrigued. What will happen to these characters?
