We were there at the Montclair Literary Festival this past week and were lucky enough to be in the room for Jonathan Santlofer's interview with Joyce Carol Oates.
Joyce Carol Oates is a recipient of the National Medal of Humanities, the National Book Critics Circle Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award, the National Book Award, and the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction, and has been several times nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. She has written some of the most enduring fiction of our time, including the national bestsellers We Were the Mulvaneys, Blonde, which was nominated for the National Book Award, and the New York Times bestseller The Falls, which won the 2005 Prix Femina. Her most recent novel is The Hazards of Time Travel. She is the Roger S. Berlind Distinguished Professor of the Humanities at Princeton University.
Jonathan Santlofer is an author and noted artist. He is the author of five best-selling novels. The latest is The Widowers Notebook.
