Them by Joyce Carol Oates

11/18/2010 - 6:00pm

In 2003, Joyce Carol Oates was asked which of her books she would most like to have a reader encounter fifty years hence. “Blonde or them,” she replied, naming one of the most recent and one of the earliest of her books (then 87 in number). A Closer Look Book Club will read and discuss the Winner of the 1970 National Book Award, them, which follows three down-on-their-luck characters—Loretta, Maureen and Jules—trying to make their way through turbulent times.
