Rising Out of the Mud

This event has already taken place.

Host: Edinburgh International Book Festival
Location: Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, EH2 4HQ
Speaker: Joyce Carol Oates

The celebrated US novelist Joyce Carol Oates joins us to discuss her new novel Mudwoman, the intensely powerful story of a young Ivy League academic whose enormous success conceals personal traumas, including her mother’s attempt to submerge her as a toddler. Each year Oates’ name is high on the list of people tipped for a Nobel Prize: this remarkable novel may well tip the balance. Supported by the American Patrons of the National Library and Galleries of Scotland.
