i have gotten out of the habit of reading fiction. but yesterday in the bookstore i remembered how much i love joyce carol oates. i plan to read sourland soon but for the time being i've gotten a couple older collections of short stories out of the library.
"Oates is a dangerous writer in the best sense of the word, one who takes risks almost obsessively, with energy and relish."
who are your favorite authors? what you think of oates?
and a good armload of these terribly charming zip purses are in the shop.
