Joyce Carol Oates

Tonight I met legendary author Joyce Carol Oates at the Tattered Cover. As usual I had nothing witty, intelligent or funny to say... I'm sure she was unimpressed by my banter and my lame joke.

Nevertheless it was a good book signing, and it was fascinating to hear the stories behind the stories. Oates has an alluring quality about her that is both charming and mysterious. I'm glad I had this opportunity to meet one of the great American writers of our time.
