Time catches up with Joyce Carol Oates, author of the fascinating/maddening novel, My Sister, My Love, which was inspired by the JonBenet Ramsey case. (I hope to have time at some to write down some of the issues I have with the book.)
Is it a bad thing that there was so much publicity about the real case?
I think it satisfies a certain desire or hunger in the populace. It depends what you think news is.
Actually, Oates has more than a couple of sentences’ worth of thoughts on the matter.
