Joyce Carol Oates
Listen to/Watch entire show:
I'll Take You There (Ecco) appears to be a novel about college in the 1960s and interracial dating.

Joyce Carol Oates differentiates herself from the unnamed heroine of this autobiographical novel and explores the mysteries of individuation and identity.
