    From one of our most powerful writers, a work of stunning frankness about losing a daughter. 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.

    Doggy Bird says: "Extremely moving memoir, well-narrated"
    "Thought-provoking, chilling & endearing"

    What did you love best about Blue Nights?

    Joan Didion ~ again!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Joan Didion represented to me ~ in only ways that she can articulate ~ what it means to be a mother and what it means to be in the 'third chapter' of life. Her insights about the incidents and passages in life that we think are important as they are happening, in contrast to what, upon reflection and after the fact, are actually important, are exquisite.


    What about Kimberly Farr’s performance did you like?

    I thought it was outstanding. At times I forgot that I was not listening to Joan Didion's voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire story is moving, but the ending touched me to the bone.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book whether on audio or in print.
