Joyce Carol Oates

The Gravedigger’s Daughter (Ecco) is Joyce Carol Oates's most autobiographical novel and the culmination of her career-long themes and obsessions. Here, she talks about the background of this very personal book and its heroine whose deterministic world view gives way to a freer, relativistic one in which reinvention of the self is possible.
