Description
The collection of essays that confirmed Didion as the author of some of the best prose written today in this country (NY Times). Her unblinking vision and deadpan sentences have influenced two generations of reporters, changing our expectations of style and voice in journalism. In each essay, Didion, through her language and her syntax, is as much of a character as those she writes about. The sum of the collection is a gorgeous and frightening portrait of America at a particular time, all viewed through Didion's peerless eye.

display_description "This work focuses on such subjects as John Wayne and Howard Hughes, growing up a girl in California, ruminating on the nature of good and evil in a Death Valley motel room, and, especially, the essence of San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury, the heart of the counterculture."--Back of book.
