Reviews

Praise for Joyce Carol Oates:

"Consummately well-written, stylistically dashing...forthrightly nightmarish" --Kirkus Reviews, on Night-Gaunts

"Oates' spookiness is visceral, psychologically involving, and socially astute." --Booklist, on Night-Gaunts

"Few writers better illuminate the mind's most disturbing corners."--Seattle Times, "The 10 best mysteries of 2015," on Jack of Spades

"Oates's brand of horror has never required the invocation of other worlds: This world is terrible enough for her. Everything she writes, in whatever genre, has an air of dread, because she deals in vulnerabilities and inevitabilities, in the desperate needs that drive people . . . to their fates. A sense of helplessness is the essence of horror, and Oates conveys that feeling as well as any writer around."--New York Times Book Review, on The Doll-Master and Other Tales of Terror

"Does any writer around do literary creepy like Joyce Carol Oates? . . . The stories always have an undercurrent of menace poised to break through at any moment."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch, on The Doll-Master and Other Tales of Terror

"A dazzling, disturbing tour de force of Gothic suspense."--Boston Globe, on Evil Eye

"Oates creates worlds and minds as overwrought and paranoid as anything a female Poe could imagine, then sprinkles her trademark exclamation points licentiously through the interior monologues to heighten the intimacy between ecstasy and madness."--Kirkus Reviews, on DIS MEM BER and Other Stories of Mystery and Suspense
