Quotes & Awards

  • “[Oates’] baroque imagination, her ability to convey the depths of violence and evil lying just below a thin veneer of civilization, gives her stories a chilling dimension.

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Chilling yet impressive—typical Oates.” 

    Booklist

  • “[Guidall and Caruso] are superb. They give realistic texture to the American idiomatic speech so important to Oates’ modern characterizations. They also understand that these charged stories need quiet, sympathetic voices held well in control as a counter to the emotional chaos emanating from the page. Their sensitive, interpreting voices are welcome company. One wouldn't want to make the journey through these stories alone.” 

    AudioFile

  • “These tightly drawn, insightful, and compulsively readable stories by the enormously talented and prolific Oates belong in all fiction collections. Highly recommended.” 

    Library Journal

    " Short stories are not my thing, but JCO is a writer who is always fearless about going to the heart of the matter, so the short story is a great form for her. I'm not always comfortable about following where she goes, but I'm always enlightened and often moved. "
