Some brief overview of book
No other writer can match the impressive oeuvre of Joyce Carol Oates. High Lonesome New and Selected Stories 1966-2006 gathers short fiction from the acclaimed authors seminal collections and includes eleven new tales that further demonstrate the breathtaking artistry and striking originality of an incomparable talent who has imbued the American short story with an edgy vitality and raw social surfaces (Chicago Tribune). erlind Distinguished Professor of the Humanities at Princeton University and has been a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters since 1978. Biography Joyce Carol Oates is one of the most influential and important storytellers in the literary world.
She has often used her supreme narrative skills to examine the dark side of middle-class Americana, and her oeuvre includes some of the finest examples of modern essays, plays, criticism, and fiction from a vast array of genres. She is still publishing with a speed and consistency of quality nearly unheard of in contemporary literature. A born storyteller, Oates has been spinning yarns since she was a little girl too young to even write.
Instead, she would communicate her stories through drawings and paintings. When she received her very first typewriter at the age of 14, her creative floodgates opened with a torrent. She says she wrote novel after novel throughout high school and college a prolificacy that has continued unabated throughout a professional career that began in 1963 with her first short story collection, By the North Gate.
Oatess breakthrough occurred in 1969 with the publication of them, a National Book Award winner that established her as a force to be reckoned with. Since that auspicious beginning, she has been nominated for nearly every major literary honor from the PENFaulkner Award to the Pulitzer Prize and her fiction turns up with regularity on The New York Times annual list of Notable Books. On average Oates publishes at least one novel, essay anthology, or story collection a year (during the 1970s, she produced at the astonishing rate of two or three books a year!).
And although her fiction often exposes the darker side of Americas brightest facades familial unrest, sexual violence, the death of innocence she has also made successful forays into Gothic novels, suspense, fantasy, and childrens literature. As novelist John Barth once remarked, Joyce Carol Oates writes all over the aesthetical map. Where she finds the time for it no one knows, but Oates manages to combine her ambitious, prolific writing career with teaching first at the University of Windsor in Canada, then (from 1978 on), at Princeton University in New Jersey.
For all her success and fame, her daily routine of teaching and writing has changed very little, and her commitment to literature as a transcendent human activity remains steadfast. Good To Know When not writing, Oates likes to take in a fight. Boxing is a celebration of the lost religion of masculinity all the more trenchant for its being lost, she says in highbrow fashion of the lowbrow sport.
Oatess Black Water, which is a thinly veiled account of Ted Kennedys car crash in Chappaquiddick, was produced as an opera in the 1990s. In 2001, Oprah Winfrey selected Oatess novel We Were the Mulvaneys for her Book Club.
