FACE TO FACE

One of the most obvious characteristics of Joyce Carol Oates, as a writer, is the combination of quantity and quality in her work. She’s published six novels, four collections of short stories, plays, and at least three volumes of poetry. She had won the O. Henry Prize Story Award before she was 30, was awarded the impressive National Book Award for her novel Them in 1970 and has been described as “the most significant novelist to have emerged in the U.S. in the last decade.”

Betty Jane Wylie’s article on widowhood, At The Heart Of A Loss (February), was refreshing reading. After so much of the downgrading of the institution of marriage which is current in every publication today, and with which our society is polluted, it is like a breath of fresh air to find someone honestly grieving for a beloved mate of 20 years.

THE SOLUTION: FORCE THE TANKERS TO KEEP THEIR DISTANCE
