Joyce Carol Oates, author of Hazards of Time Travel

“Time travel” --- and its hazards --- are made literal in Joyce Carol Oates’ new novel, in which a recklessly idealistic girl dares to test the perimeters of her tightly controlled (future) world and is punished by being sent back in time to a region of North America --- “Wainscotia, Wisconsin”--- that existed 80 years before.
