Didion’s journalistic skills are displayed as never before
in this story of a year in her life that began with her daughter in a medically
induced coma and her husband unexpectedly dead due to a heart attack.
This powerful and moving work is Didion’s “attempt to make
sense of the weeks and then months that cut loose any fixed idea I ever had
about death about illness…about marriage and children and memory…about the shallowness
of sanity about life itself.” With vulnerability and passion, Joan Didion
explores an intensely personal yet universal experience of love and loss. The
Year of Magical Thinking will speak directly to anyone who has ever loved a
husband, wife, or child.
