Joyce Carol Oates

The Golden Notebook welcomes back award-winning author JOYCE CAROL OATES for a reading and discussion of her work, including her latest books, A Book of American Martyrs and Soul at the White Heat.


The author of numerous books, Joyce Carol Oates has written over forty novels as well as critically acclaimed collections of short fiction, essays, plays, poetry, the bestseller On Boxing, and memoir about her childhood, The Lost Landscape. Her remarkable bibliography spans forms, themes, topics, and genres. Critic Henry Louis Gates Jr. said, "A future archeologist equipped only with her oeuvre could easily piece together the whole of postwar America." 

She is a recipient of the National Book Award, the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction, and the 2005 Prix Femina for The Falls. She is the Roger S. Berlind Distinguished Professor of the Humanities at Princeton University, and she has been a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters since 1978. In 2010, President Barack Obama awarded Oates the National Humanities Medal.
