The White Album | [Joan Didion]

The White Album

First published in 1979, The White Album records indelibly the upheavals and aftermaths of the 1960s. Examining key events, figures, and trends of the era - including Charles Manson, the Black Panthers, and the shopping mall - through the lens of her own spiritual confusion, Joan Didion helped to define mass culture as we now understand it. Written with a commanding sureness of tone and linguistic precision, The White Album is a central example of American reportage and a classic of American autobiography.

What the Critics Say

"All of the essays manifest not only [Didion's] intelligence but an instinct for details that continue to emit pulsations in the reader's memory and a style that is spare, subtly musical in its phrasing and exact. Add to these her highly vulnerable sense of herself, and the result is a voice like no other in contemporary journalism." (The New York Times Book Review)

    Story
    "A great portrait of a fascinating time."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, definitely. This is a really compelling audiobook, beautifully done.


    What does Susan Varon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Susan Varon's voice is a perfect match for Didion's essays. I'd love to hear her do more.
