Summary Å eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ¹ Joan Didion Joan Didion ¹ 7 characters characters South and West 107 0 through Louisiana Mississippi and Alabama She interviews prominent local figures describes motels diners a deserted reptile farm a visit with Walker Percy a ladies' brunch at the Mississippi Broadcasters' Convention She writes about the stifling heat the almost viscous pace of life the sulfurous light and the preoccupation with race class and heritage she finds in the small towns they pass through And from a different notebook the California Notes that began. Think of this as a literary sketchbook full of jotted down conversation scraps impressions memories and thoughts Most of the book is Didion s reflections on the South circa 1970 The smaller portion of the book deals with California around the time of the Patty Hearst trial I loved the section devoted to the South not so much the WestNo one writes like Didion her prose is so pure and crisp her observations so keen and precise Didion s tone is always cool almost clinical but she cuts straight to the heart of what she is examining and holds it forth for us to observe stripped to the bone and bare of artifice I love her always haveThis book is probably for Didion fans only though it s a slim volume of dated bits n pieces that will likely only give pleasure to those who rejoice in her extraordinary acuity and the beauty of the written word

Summary Å eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ¹ Joan Didion Joan Didion ¹ 7 characters characters South and West 107 From the best selling author of the National Book Award winning The Year of Magical Thinking two extended excerpts from her never before seen notebooks writings that offer an illuminating glimpse into the mind and process of a legendary writerJoan Didion has always kept notebooks of overheard dialogue observations interviews drafts of essays and articles and here is one such draft that traces a road trip she took with her husband John Gregory Dunne in June 197. I love Joan DidionOn any given day Play it as it Lays fights for a spot in my top three favorite novels of all time alongside Renata Adler s Pitch Dark Mary Robison s Why Did I Ever and Joy Williams s State of Grace I can make have made a convincing argument that the opening paragraph of Slouching Towards Bethlehem is probably the very best opening paragraph in all of creative nonfictionI think and I am not alone in this certainly that her body of work cements her as one of the most important and one would like to add most brilliant most gifted most skilled writers of her timeDespite no precisely because of all that I can t in good faith say that South and West is a good book or even that it necessarily is a book and I am absolutely perplexed by the decision made by whom and with what motivation and with what degree of awareness are just some of the uestions I have to publish it The book again if that is really what one can call it and I m not sure it is is roughly 90% Joan Didion goes to the South and is haughty and not in the semi charming way she can often be haughty The other 10% the West section feels somewhat positioned as a response to the feelings she expressed in the South chapter like the fact say that she did not want to visit Eudora Welty because Eudora Welty lived in a town with an airport and if she got within a short drive of an airport she would surely board the next flight to the Chateau Marmont which is less a paraphrase than one would hope but it too feels mystifyingly disordered and thinThere are many good sentences A few memorable moments Absolutely no reason for its existence
