    The author of the current `all the rage' bestseller 'The Year of Magical Thinking' produced this collection of non-fiction pieces in 1993, which divides into three psychogeographic sections: Washington (3 essays); California (7 essays); New York (1 essay). At each stop Didion uncovers the mythic narratives that elude other observers. She tells readers about the fantasies the media construct around crime victims and presidential candidates; she give new interpretations of the stories of Nancy Reagan and Patty Hearst; she charts America's rollercoaster ride through evanescent booms and hard times that won't go away - in this bracing amalgam of skepticism and sympathy. 319p.

    Richly textured with bits of her own childhood and married life with her husband, John Gregory Dunne, and daughter, Quintana Roo, this new book by Joan Didion examines her thoughts, fears, and doubts regarding having children, illness, and growing old. Blue Nights opens on July 26, 2010, as Didion thinks back to Quintana’s wedding in New York seven years before. “Today would be her wedding anniversary.” This fact triggers vivid snapshots of Quintana’s childhood – in Malibu, in Brentwood, at school in Holmby Hills. Reflecting on her daughter but also on her role as a parent, Didion asks the candid questions any parent might about how she feels she failed either because cues were not taken or perhaps displaced. “How could I have missed what was clearly there to be seen?” Finally, perhaps we all remain unknown to each other. Seamlessly woven in are incidents Didion sees as underscoring her own age, something she finds hard to acknowledge, much less accept. 188p.

    First published in 2001. In these coolly observant essays, Joan Didion, author of the current raging bestseller, 'The Year of Magical Thinking' - available at STRAND BOOKSTORE -focuses her sight on the American political process. Through the deconstruction of the sound bites and photo ops of three presidential campaigns, one presidential impeachment, and an unforgettable sex scandal, Didion reveals the sheer, stripped-away mechanics of American politics. The uncomfortable truth is just that, built on these written pieces into a disturbing portrait of the political landscape which we've invented of our very own making. Didion's laser beam apprehensions only make it the more real. 338p.

    • Format: Hardcover
    • ISBN-13: 9781400043149
    • Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf
    • Published: October 2005
    From one of America's iconic writers, The Year of Magical Thinking explores Joan Didion's intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage that ends suddenly and tragically, when her husband of 40 years, John Gregory Dunne, dies of a massive coronary sitting across from her at dinner in their NYC apartment; and the prolonged, and degenerating illness of her only, adopted daughter. The book is an effort to make sense out of the impossible, in which the impossible remains, indelibly, beyond comprehension. Didion, somehow, finds the language to express her own existence, 'about the shallowness of sanity, about life itself.' Winner of the National Book Award.

Presented in a handsome cloth-bound edition, this volume republishes the out-of-print edition of 'The White Album' and even includes latter works such as 'Where I Was From.' The lifetime of cultural criticism of the shifting American Dream is preserved with the same timeless style and insight thathas made Didion's work resonate with the passage of time.
