Product description

Review

"Didion's essays of a world featuring barricades and bombings, mass murders and kidnapped heiresses make recent history as filtered through her seem a savage and passionate drama, something you can put a hand on and feel it beating, something you can put your ear to and hear its story."
VILLAGE VOICE

"Brilliant, troubling, indelible tales and reflections."
SAN DIEGO TRIBUNE

"Reveals a wholly original analytic mind, a sensibility as expansive and idiosyncratic as a 19th-century novelist's."
MONA SIMPSON

"Our quintessential essayist."
JERRY KOSINSKI, 'LA Times'
