"I Am No One You Know" contains nineteen startling stories that
bear witness to the remarkably varied lives of Americans of our
time. In "Fire," a troubled young wife discovers a rare, radiant
happiness in an adulterous relationship. In "Curly Red," a girl
makes a decision to reveal a family secret, and changes her life
irrevocably. In "The Girl with the Blackened Eye," selected for The
Best American Mystery Stories 2001, a girl pushed to an even
greater extreme of courage and desperation manages to survive her
abduction by a serial killer. And in "Three Girls," two
adventuresome NYU undergraduates seal their secret love by
following, and protecting, Marilyn Monroe in disguise at Strand
Used Books on a snowy evening in 1956.
These vividly rendered portraits of women, men, and children
testify to Oates's compassion for the mysterious and luminous
resources of the human spirit.
