THE LOST LANDSCAPE by Joyce Carol Oates

September 8, 2015

Joyce Carol Oates spoke about her book, The Lost Landscape, at Politics & Prose on Wednesday, September 8, 2015.

In A Widow’s Story Oates gave a powerful and moving account of her husband’s sudden death and how the loss led her to fresh perspectives on life. In her new memoir, the award-winning writer and Princeton professor of the humanities jumps farther back in time, chronicling her childhood and adolescence in rural western New York. An avid storyteller even then, Oates credits Alice in Wonderland with inspiring her to find adventures in everything, and she remains true to that spirit, bringing to life family and friends (which include a chicken) and reflecting on hard work.
