Joan Didion: The 1960s & 70s (Loa #325): Run River / Slouching Towards Bethlehem / Play It as It Lays / A Book of Common Prayer / The White Album

Joan Didion: The 1960s & 70s (Loa #325): Run River / Slouching Towards Bethlehem / Play It as It Lays / A Book of Common Prayer / The White Album - Joan Didion

Joan Didion: The 1960s & 70s (Loa #325): Run River / Slouching Towards Bethlehem / Play It as It Lays / A Book of Common Prayer / The White Album


Library of America launches a definitive collected edition of one of the most original and electric writers of our time with a volume gathering her five iconic books of the 1960s & 70s

Joan Didion's influence on postwar American letters is undeniable. Whether writing fiction, memoir, or trailblazing journalism, her gifts for narrative and dialogue, and her intimate but detached authorial persona, have won her legions of readers and admirers. Now Library of America launches its multi-volume edition of Didion's collected writings, prepared in consultation with the author, that brings together her fiction and nonfiction for the first time. Collected in this first volume are Didion's five iconic books from the 1960s and 1970s: Run River, Slouching Towards Bethlehem, Play It As It Lays, A Book of Common Prayer, and The White Album. Whether writing about countercultural San Francisco, the Las Vegas wedding industry, Lucille Miller, Charles Manson, or the shopping mall, Didion achieves a wonderful negative sublimity without condemning her subjects or condescending to her readers. Chiefly about California, these books display Didion's genius for finding exactly the right language and tone to capture America's broken twilight landscape at a moment of headlong conflict and change.
