Lty Told in halves in the very different voices of Krista and Aaron Little Bird of Heaven is a classic Oates novel in which the lyricism of intense sexual love is intertwined with the anguish of loss and tenderness is barely distinguishable from cruelty By the novel's end the fated lovers meeting again as adults are at last ready to exorcise the ghosts of the past and come to terms with their legacy of guilt misplaced love and redemptive yearning. When one is as prolific a writer as Oates there are sure to be hits and misses Little Bird of Heaven unfortunately is one of the latter A disappointment as when Oates centers her tales in upstate New York she usually evokes both setting and character effectively This novel fails particularly in creating sympathetic and convincing characters Oates device of repetition which normally works well is intrusive here The magic she oft times operates in immersing the reader in the story is absent Compared to hits like Because it is Bitter and Because It is My Heart or The Gravedigger’s Daughter to cite a couple Little Bird of Heaven joins My Sister My Love and Man Crazy as failures
