Renowned literary writer Joyce Carol Oates shares her thoughts on writing and reading in what could be called her literary memoir. Narrator Susan Ericksen captures Oates's essence with great style and clear enunciation. The collection of writers Oates discusses is eclectic--H.P Lovecraft, John Updike, Larry McMurtry, and Margaret Atwood, to name a few. With each author she explores a particular work, framing its significance within his or her previous works and the culture in which it was produced. There's a haughtiness to Eriksen's delivery, which aligns with Oates's linguistic flourishes. The author delves deeply into the abstract, and Eriksen is there to make her meaning clear through pacing and emphasis. L.E. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2016]
