About the Book

I'll Take You There

by Joyce Carol Oates

"Anellia" is a young student who, though gifted with a penetrating intelligence, is drastically inclined to obsession. Funny, mordant, and compulsive, she falls passionately in love with a brilliant yet elusive black philosophy student. But she is tested most severely by a figure out of her past she'd long believed dead.

Astonishingly intimate and unsparing, and pitiless in exposing the follies of the time, I'LL TAKE YOU THERE is a dramatic revelation of the risks --- and curious rewards --- of the obsessive personality as well as a testament to the stubborn strength of a certain type of contemporary female intellectual.
