Award-winning author and novelist, Joyce Carol Oates, gives the world a
work, unlike anything she's ever written, in her memoir, A Widow’s Story.
The notoriously private Oates gives a rare and intimate look at her pain, anguish and the devastating toll that the unexpected loss of her husband had on her life. She unflinchingly tells of her courage as she faces the realities of moving on with life alone and unprepared. It is an honest acknowledgement of any widow’s desperation and the reluctant acceptance of a new reality.
