Joyce Carol Oates with Henri Cole at 92nd Street Y

“There was a time,” The New York Times lamented, “when you had to earn the right to draft a memoir.”

We think Joyce Carol Oates has earned that right and believe the Times would agree. After publishing more than 50 novels, her newest book, A Widow’s Story—one of the National Post’s ‘Most Anticipated Books of 2011′—is an intimate memoir about the death of her husband Raymond Smith in 2008 and the unexpected aftermath, after 48 years of marriage. Addressing his death in The New Yorker in December, Oates wrote: “So much to say in a marriage, so much unsaid. You assume that there will be other times, other occasions. Years…”

Joyce Carol Oates read from A Widow’s Story at 92nd Street Y on February 21. Afterward she was interviewed poet Henri Cole.
