I read anything by Joyce Carol Oates. She has written so many wonderful books. Many people don't like her as her writing can be dark and depressing but she is actually writing about the true human spirit and the way people conduct their daily lives. She has won many book awards and is a professor at Princeton University. For anyone looking for books to read, just go to your local library. You would be surprised how knowledgeable the librarians are. If you tell them what you like they can find many books for you. And most books can be checked out for 3 weeks and renewed. So I say give it a try.
