Joyce Carol Oates, the U.S. author who contributed prose to Issue 7 of Interlitq, has been cited in “The long road to forgiveness: Jodi Picoult’s latest book deals with Auschwitz’s chilling past, Arifa Akbar writes” (The Age, 25.05.13): Picoult always knew she wanted to write. She enrolled onto Princeton University’s creative writing course. There she was taught by Robert Stone and – after switching out of Joyce Carol Oates’ class (”her teaching style didn’t mesh with the way I write”) – also by Mary Morris, whom she speaks of as her ”mentor”.
