Interview with Joyce Carol Oates

Read Tin House’s interview with Joyce Carol Oates here.

Oates is just such a living puzzle: A funny and soft-spoken writer who often writes about violent extremes. A generous teacher who finds time to be one of our most prolific writers.”

Tin House: Which books of yours came to you naturally? And why?

Oates: “Naturally”?—none.
