Sa réputation croissante dans le monde littéraire l’amène à des rencontres et des amitiés avec d’autres écrivains connus dont Philip Roth, John Updike, Susan Sontag, Joan Didion et bien d’autres. Mais, jamais très confortable avec les signes extérieurs de l. a. célébrité, Oates ne cesse de se réfugier dans sa vie intérieure à los angeles poursuite de son œuvre. Une œuvre dont ce magazine est à coup sûr une pièce majeure.
