Joyce Carol Oates

In New York, Razia Iqbal talks to the prolific writer and academic Joyce Carol Oates, about how she finds so much work rewarding.

Oates attributes her enormous output to a love of writing and a Protestant work ethic. She has turned her pen to numerous subjects including professional boxing, Marilyn Monroe, Detroit and a memoir of life after the death of her first husband. All while still working as a full time academic.

Razia Iqbal asks after so much work is it still as rewarding as it has always been?
