Audible Editor Reviews

In this episode of Symphony Space’s Thalia Book Club series, filmmaker Griffin Dunne hosts an intimate interview and live discussion with literary superstar Joan Didion, author of such classic works as Slouching Towards Bethlehem, The Year of Magical Thinking, and - as especially featured in this particular audio event - her 2011 release, Blue Nights.

Dunne, Didion’s nephew, created at her request a kind of light documentary film to accompany the release of Blue Nights, and his resulting intimate knowledge of the book makes this interview a rare and special glimpse into the mind of a truly beloved American author. An audience question-and-answer session expands the scope of the interview, introducing new insights into Didion’s life and work.
