PEOPLE WHO HAVE REVIEWED JOYCE CAROL OATES FOR THE NYTBR

We have a no-repeat policy: An author, we figure, is entitled to a new reviewer with every book. But that gets tricky when the author's output exceeds the English-speaking population. Here now, a partial list of JCO reviewers dating back to 1993.
  1. John Crowley
    "Foxfire"
  2. Michael Upchurch
    "Haunted"
  3. James Carroll
    "What I Lived For"
  4. Marilyn Stasio

  5. Steven Marcus
    "Zombie"
  6. Kathryn Harrison
    "Will You Always Love Me?"

    "First Love" and "We Are the Mulvaneys"
  8. A.O. Scott
    "Man Crazy"
  9. Sarah Kerr

  11. Michael Pye
    "Star Bright Will Be With You Soon"
  12. D.T. Max

    "The Tattooed Girl"
  18. Terrence Rafferty
    "The Falls"
  19. A.O. Scott (A rare repeat engagement. I assume the editors were waiting for the earth to repopulate.)
