Joyce Carol Oates on 'The Accursed'Download audio (MP3)
Shortly after moving to Princeton, New Jersey in 1984, Joyce Carol Oates began drafting a story based on the Victorian-era history of the area. After setting the manuscript aside for 30 years, Oates has finished what became a gothic thriller, "The Accursed." The novel combines portrayals of historical figures like Upton Sinclair and Woodrow Wilson with surreal elements -- including vampires, demons and ghosts. We talk to the celebrated author about her new novel and prolific career.
