Reviews

"Stunning...[a] varied, kaleidoscopic, and...insightful map to the formation of a writer who understands how deeply mysterious the 'familiar' really is."--Publishers Weekly
"Oates perfectly captures the unique confusion of childhood, brought on by the unsatisfying explanations of adults."--Elle
"'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
"[An] intriguing new memoir...Oates mines literary gold."--San Francisco Chronicle
"This captivating account of the growth of a writer's mind puts [Oates'] new collection of essays firmly in the tradition of similar autobiographical works by writers such as Goethe, Wordsworth, and Joyce."--Philadelphia Inquirer
"[An] intimate yet sweeping memoir..."--The New Yorker
"A tender-hearted excavation of [Oates'] hardscrabble early life...in sharing with us the lost landscape of her childhood, she has ensured it will never be forgotten."--O magazine
"...a tender-hearted excavation of [Oates'] hardscrabble early life...in sharing with us the lost landscape of her childhood, she has ensured it will never be forgotten."--O magazine
"...affecting...the book place[s] us intimately in the mind of Oates' vulnerable self."--Providence Journal
