Blending the Lines of Genre with Joyce Carol Oates

Writers, Ink

Legendary writer Joyce Carol Oates is a master of blending the lines of genre. In her most recent anthology, Night Neon, she employs eerily multidimensional characters, elements of hallucination and memory loss, and a unique blend of literary and genre fiction to develop gripping, unsuspecting horror stories. Oates, a staple in the writing industry, released her first short story, Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been? in 1966 and has since published over 70 books and received multiple Pulitzer nominations. To order Night Neon and Breathe, her latest release, follow the link below. From Amazon.com: Joyce Carol Oates is the author of more than 70 books, including novels, short story collections, poetry volumes, plays, essays, and criticism, including the national bestsellers We Were the Mulvaneys and Blonde. Among her many honors are the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction and the National Book Award. Oates is the Roger S. Berlind Distinguished Professor of the Humanities at Princeton University, and has been a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters since 1978.

5 Things with Lisa Birnbach

Merry Christmas 2020. In November, Lisa Birnbach was invited to interview the incomparable author Joyce Carol Oates for the Covid challenged 2020 Miami Book Fair. This was their conversation. Unfortunately, this was not originally scheduled to air on 5 Things with Lisa - so even though we learn about Joyce's new book "Night. Sleep Death. The Stars." we didn't get to learn about the 5 things that make life better for her - but we bet that #1 would probably be her cats. Fortunately, for us, Lisa does share the 5 things that made her life better this week. Give it a listen.Lisa's 5 Things: 1. Other peoples Podcasts - like "Smartless", & "Nice White Parents", 2. Chocolate covered almonds, 3. The joy of a new Puppy, 4. Dr. Anthony Fauchi, 5. Stella Artois Cider.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
