An interview with the creator of the website Celestial Timepiece discussing Joyce Carol Oates's literary career and the web project documenting that career.

The interview was the basis for a chapter in the Joyce Carol Oates volume of the Cahiers de L’Herne—a French monographic series dedicated to the critical appraisal of world-renowned authors, and providing texts, letters, testimonies, and photographs as well as scholarly work by specialists in the subject. The aim of the series is to offer in-depth reference books on major authors and thus to contribute to a better understanding of the authors and their work in France and worldwide.


The J.C. Oates volume of the Cahiers de L’Herne is available from the publisher website.
