«'These 'tales of darkness and dread' won't put you to sleep, but they'll give you more interesting nightmares'»

New York Review of Books

«'A writer of extraordinary strengths'»

Guardian

«'If the phrase 'woman of letters' existed, Joyce Carol Oates would be, foremost in this country, entitled to it'»

«'Oates perfectly captures the atmosphere of fear and well-meaning misunderstanding. And I loved 'The Last Man of Letters' a brutally funny portrait of a ghastly old literary celebrity heading for his comeuppance'»
