    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 Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) About the Author ---------------- Joan Didion was born in California and lives in New York City.
