Renowned novelist and now editor of New Jersey Noir, Joyce Carol Oates, talks about the book and what it reflects about the state of New Jersey.
ah HA! another reason to love your show. We have a home in the Adirondacks and my kids (now in their 20's) have so many childhood memories of their summers at our camp. I wonder if we rent to you under an assumed name? haha I have several repeat renters.
Ms Oates also contributed to another excellent Jersey collection, "What's Your Exit?" http://www.amazon.com/Whats-Literary-Detour-Through-Jersey/dp/0977934357/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1320076461&sr=8-1
Sorry Joyce, but according to the NY Times, out of 3 measures NJ only even makes 1, and that's at #8. So.....please stop spreading false stigmas about my state. Thank you

I don't understand Ms. Oates's use of "anatomizing" w/regard to crime. Is it a literary rather than a literal term?
