[Quick Pick] The Journal of Joyce Carol Oates : 1973-1982 by Greg Johnson, Ed.
In this volume, Oates writes about everything from her love of teaching, to her internal dialogues about writing, to her health. Regular Oates readers will find much to enjoy here, illuminating her life during the period when she produced such works as Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been? and A Bloodsmoor Romance. It will also come as no surprise to many that there is much here about Oates' family background, particularly as it informs her fiction.
