Satirical in tone, Joyce Carol Oates's recent novel My Sister, My Love: The Intimate Story of Skyler Rampike presents a powerful polemic against the subjugation of contemporary women through commercialized fabrications of feminine beauty. Accordingly, the novel can be read as critique of the psychic violence suffered by women who are thrall to what Naomi Wolf described as the "beautry myth."
