“Most serious and productive artists,” writes Joyce Carol Oates, “are ‘haunted’ by their material—this is the galvanizing force of their creativity, their motivation. It is not and cannot be a fully conscious or volitional ‘haunting’—it is something that seems to happen to us, as if from without, no matter what craft is brought to bear upon it…” Even as Amy Gustine displays a remarkable command of prose and narrative in her debut collectionYou Should Pity Us Instead, the obsessions that materialize again and again in her stories, watchful and ghostlike, leave little doubt that the author has known such a haunting.
