How to Proceed – with Joyce Carol Oates

A new episode in our podcast with Linn Ullmann

In this episode, Linn Ullmann talks to the American author Joyce Carol Oates about memories and loss, about «bearing witness» through literature, about her mother and grandmother, about the US today, about writing, failure – and boxing.
