What made the experience of listening to The Corn Maiden and Other Nightmares the most enjoyable?
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Yes. The pacing is remarkable, which JCO manages through point of view. Nobody gets deeper into character and motivations than Joyce Carol Oates.
Have you listened to any of Adam Verner and Christine Williams ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
If you could rename The Corn Maiden and Other Nightmares, what would you call it?
If You Have a Twin, Run!
Any additional comments?
I've been a fan of JCO for many years. This is a strong collection, but not her best. I'm still always floored by her gift for incident and apt words. As always you have to piece together the story--she doesn't spoonfeed you. You understand the story only after it's done, because she's so close to point of view. The characters stumble and grope. It's like life.
