Joyce Carol Oates: Blonde

Hosted by

The life of Marilyn Monroe inspires Joyce Carol Oates, vast accomplishment in Blonde (Ecco/Harper Collins) and provides an opening for our conversation about a feminine icon. We explore violations of privacy, the secrecy of abuse, the relationship between public and private lives, and Oates' special gift: the ability to enter another life completely.
