Reviews

`A compelling and at times mysterious testimony to a life of letters like no other I know' Richard Ford `Every piece merits re-issue ... works effectively as a continuous memoir ... here and there we glimpse the gothic seam Oates has since mined in her fiction' Suzi Feay, Financial Times `The spareness of the prose belies a hinterland of suffering . . Steely, lean and bleakly allusive, The Lost Landscape gives an unsettling insight into the ways in which Oates's writing career has emerged' Times Literary Supplement `A tender-hearted excavation of [Oates'] hardscrabble early life' O, The Oprah Magazine `Oates perfectly captures the unique confusion of childhood' Elle (US) `An exquisitely rendered glimpse of [Oates'] childhood in rural upstate New York' Bookpage `[an] intriguing new memoir . . . Oates mines literary gold' San Francisco Chronicle `The Lost Landscape...offers a window into a highly original mind. While it is never a given that a writer's personal story can illuminate her work, in Oates' case, it very much does' Minneapolis Star Tribune Praise for Joyce Carol Oates: `[Joyce Carol Oates] is simply the most consistently inventive, brilliant, curious and creative writer going, as far as I'm concerned' Gillian Flynn, author of "Gone Girl" `Joyce Carol Oates is a writer who always takes your breath away' Mail on Sunday `Oates is a writer of extraordinary strengths. Her great subject, naturally, is love' Guardian 'Oates is an inspired writer, and a formidable psychologist. She has a thrilling way of grasping an emotion, wasting no time and launching herself straight at the aching heart of the matter' Independent 'Oates's prose contains a deep felt rawness which hovers between hope, despair and love' Guardian
