Oates's latest returns to upstate New York's Mount Ephraim, the setting of We Were the Mulvaneys, Oates's 1996 novela 2001 Oprah pickabout one family's privilege and decay. This time, Oates turns to the middle class: narrator Nikki Eaton, 31, is a reporter for the smalltown Beacon and her family's black sheep. She's having an affair with a married DJ; she barely tolerates her widowed mother, Gwen, and her homemaker sister, Clare. As the novel opens, Nikki arrives at Gwen's Mother's Day party with newly spiked, "inky-maroon" hair and contempt for Gwen's cooking, one-story house and endless munificence to her ragtag guests. Two days later, Gwen is murdered by an ex-con. Chronicling Nikki's year following Gwen's death, the novel includes some wonderfully precise emotional observations. But more often the prose sags beneath the weight of banal information and a story line too redolent of pulp. Naturally, the "swarthy" police detective investigating Gwen's murder initially seems repulsive, and naturally, in the novel's final pages, Nikki thinks: "I had not noticed in the past how strong his profile was." There are no surprises, that's for sure. And yet the novel is so conventional and relentlessly detailed that it can't help showing its characters behaving in ways that resonate. (Oct.)

"This is my story about missing my mother," Nikki says at the start of Missing Mom. "One day, in a way unique to you, it will be your story, too." Although many critics compared Missing Mom to Oatess classic, We Were the Mulvaneys, they agreed that the latter is the far superior work. Reviewers thought Nikki inconsistent and uneven; other characters came off as flat. Only the mother remained in their minds as a magnificent, realistic characterone of Oatess best to date, in fact, since Oates reveals the underestimated supermom as a woman with her own secrets and complexity. Others, however, criticized the plot as lacking originality and surprise. Though Missing Mom disappointed critics in light of their lofty expectations of this award-winning author, the good news is that theres probably another novel just around the corner.Copyright  2004 Phillips & Nelson Media, Inc.
From Booklist
Oates alternates between big, topical novels that reveal as much about society as about individuals, such as The Falls (2004), and more intensely focused psychological portraits, such as I'll Take You There (2002) and now this hypnotic tale of shock and mourning. The Eatons lived for several decades in a modest ranch house in the small town of Mt. Emphraim in western New York. Nikki, the hip, independent 31-year-old narrator, is a newspaper features writer given to flirty attire. She has now truly riled her do-gooder mother, the recently widowed Gwen, and her bossy sister, Clare, mother of two, by carrying on an affair with a married man. In spite of the friction, the women are close, until a violent tragedy hits like a boulder hurled into a pond. Oates tracks every ripple in her empathic drama as she meticulously charts the daunting and transforming process of missing a lost loved one. Nikki is smart, frank, and feeling, and the reader is right there with her as she struggles to cope with the absence of her mother and an unnerving torrent of painful revelations. Oates is at once erotic and scientific in her uncanny detailing of ordinary things experienced under extraordinary circumstances, from the contents of junk drawers to the making of a meal and the textures of skin and clothing. This almost hallucinatory precision, contrasted with high-voltage encounters with law officials and stricken neighbors and relatives, makes for a profoundly involving and haunting explication of grief, followed, finally, by a renewed embrace of life.
