Brilliant quote! Having just finished her latest "The Accursed" - her writing is still powerful, playful, and erudite! What a mind!

[Oates' personal appearance (she's a tiny woman) and speaking voice/manner (she has a soft, high, little girl voice) are quite dissonant with her writing style & content] [Sort of like a 12 oz. attack trained fluffy Persian kitten! ]

She's long overdue for both the Pulitzer & Nobel prizes. IMHO.

Thanks for this quote!
