We Were the Mulvaneys (Oprah's Book Club) - Joyce Carol Oates

This is one of the most emotionally devastating novels I have ever read. Unfortunately, the end of the novel feels a little rushed and slightly artificial. I don't think I should harp too much on this because the majority of the novel is outstanding, horrific, a page turner and probably a fair allegory for the dissolution of the nuclear family in the US in the post-1960s.
