Review
------

“Thrilling . . . a living, sharp, and memorable book. . . . An exact, candid, and penetrating account of
personal terror and bereavement . . . sometimes quite funny because it dares to tell the truth.”
—Robert Pinsky, The New York Times Book Review

“Stunning candor and piercing details. . . . An indelible portrait of loss and grief.”
—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“I can’t think of a book we need more than hers. . . . I can’t imagine dying without this book.”
—John Leonard, New York Review of Books

“Achingly beautiful. . . . We have come to admire and love Didion for her preternatural poise, unrivaled eye for
absurdity, and Orwellian distaste for cant. It is thus a difficult, moving, and extraordinarily poignant experience to
watch her direct such scrutiny inward.”
—Gideon Lewis-Kraus, Los Angeles Times

“An act of consummate literary bravery, a writer known for her clarity allowing us to watch her mind as it becomes
clouded with grief. . . . It also skips backward in time [to] call up a shimmering portrait of her unique marriage. . .
. To make her grief real, Didion shows us what she has lost.”
—Lev Grossman, Time
