New Joan Didion!

Didion's follow-up to her best-selling and critically-acclaimed memoir The Year Of Magical Thinking is here! While YoMT dealt with her grief after losing her husband, in Blue Nights she tells of the heartbreak of losing her 39-year old daughter Quintana Roo to equally sudden misfortune. As known for her deft handling of heavy subject matter as she is for her absolutely stunning prose, Didion has produced another spectacular mediation on loss and how it alters the lives of those left behind.

You can hear Joan herself reading from the book here.
