An ingenious, dystopian novel of one young womanA??s resistance against the constraints of an oppressive society, from the inventive imagination of Joyce Carol Oates
A??Time travelA? A?? and its hazardsA??are made literal in this astonishing new novel in which a recklessly idealistic girl dares to test the perimeters of her tightly controlled (future) world and is punished by being sent back in time to a region of North America A?? A??Wainscotia, WisconsinA?A??that existed eighty years before. Cast adrift in time in this idyllic Midwestern town she is set upon a course of A??rehabilitationA?A??but cannot resist falling in love with a fellow exile and questioning the constrains of the Wainscotia world with results that are both devastating and liberating.
Arresting and visionary, Hazards of Time Travel is both a novel of harrowing discovery and an exquisitely wrought love story that may be Joyce Carol OatesA??s most unexpected novel so far.

"Narrator Andi Arndt makes the surreal seem absolutely real in this time-bending dystopian slow burn. In a near future, uniformity is mandated, free thought is discouraged, and history is scrubbed. Arndt portrays the confusion and terror of the reluctant heroine, who is flung back in time as punishment for questioning the status quo. As narrator, Arndt is so adept that she makes the lead character sound wistful for her former life in the present, where everyone is monitored and questions can get you killed. Plan on getting through this audiobook in one sitting. Once you start, you won't be able to stop. A.R.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
