About this course:

Joan Didion’s writing is uniquely stylish, which makes it as recognizable as the work of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner, Updike, Bellow, Salinger and Roth. And her vision of America—eloquent, sometimes amusing, often caustic, and staggeringly precise—has earned her an impressive reputation in American letters. In this class, we read and discuss one of her novels, Play It As It Lays; two essay collections, Slouching Towards Bethlehem and The White Album; and her autobiographical The Year of Magical Thinking, a stunningly detailed road map of loss and survival.
