Joan Didion ~ again!
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.
I thought it was outstanding. At times I forgot that I was not listening to Joan Didion's voice.
The entire story is moving, but the ending touched me to the bone.
I recommend this book whether on audio or in print.
This investigative report reveals a suspenseful narrative, and engages the reader to critically think about end of life decision-making.
