Junot Díaz and Jamaica Kincaid read from their novels at the 92nd Street Y, Jan 26, 2009.

Junot reads first, and Kincaid begins her reading at the 2:52 mark

Junot Díaz’s novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao won the Pulitzer Prize in 2008. Said Edward P. Jones: It is the untold stories that propel—those vibrant, colorful, magical, historical swirls of humanity that make up our knowing. [This] first novel offers that and more. Jamaica Kincaids fiction vividly and often harrowingly describes the difficult coming-of-age of strong-minded girls who, very much like herself, were born into tropical poverty, wrote Dwight Garner. Kincaids works include Lucy, The Autobiography of My Mother, My Brother, Talk Stories and Mr. Potter.

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.

In the 1980s, Maxine Hong Kingston and Leslie Marmon Silko traveled through China together. They reunited at the Poetry Center on January 31 to read from their new memoirs, I Love a Broad Margin to My Life (Kingston) and The Turquoise Ledge (Silko). Said Ms. Silko about Ms. Kingston: “She is one of our best writers, [displaying] the generosity of spirit and the luminous prose we so urgently need in this time of war after war.” Said Ms. Kingston about Ms. Silko: “To read [Silko] is to hear the voices of the ancestors and spirits telling us where we came from, who we are, and where we must go.”

0 Afternoon Night Table: Roger Rosenblatt with E.L. Doctorowhttp://www.92y.org/shop/category.asp?category=888Programs+%2D+Literary+Readings888&92Y_drop=prog-literary

Author and Bronx native E.L. Doctorow was here this spring Unterberg Poetry Center with journalist and author Roger Rosenblatt.

They spoke about Doctorows time as a student at Bronx High School of Science, being named after Edgar Allen Poe, and his new novel, Homer & Langley. The novel, he explained, is loosely based on the Collyer brothers of Harlem, strange, reclusive eccentrics who lived in a house on the upper Fifth Ave.
