Editorial Reviews

Joan Didion has received acclaim for both her fiction and nonfiction though she will no doubt be remembered for her incredibly powerful essays on life and the media. Her memoir The Year of Magical Thinking won her the National Book Award for Nonfiction in 2005. In this episode of Live from the 92nd Street Y, Didion, in conversation with former New York Times Executive Editor Joseph Lelyveld, discusses her most recent work as well as her thoughts on the role of journalists and the media in contemporary America.

Publisher's Summary

Joyce Carol Oates called Joan Didion "an articulate witness to the most stubborn and intractable truths of our time." Ms. Didion is the author of the novels Play It as It Lays and The Last Thing He Wanted, the essay collections Slouching Toward Bethlehem and The White Album, and the memoirs Where I Was From and The Year of Magical Thinking.

Lost for words

The only note I would like to make here is that while Joseph Lelyveld welcomes her with the first few minutes of introduction, the narrator is Joan Didion herself.
