The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
I am looking forward to her next book; Blue Nights.
I have read other bloggers that hold her in high esteem (as I do) and some bloggers who think she is "cold" and" icy".
Obviously, I do not agree with the latter blogggers. I do not know of any other author who gives so much of herself and yet, does it truthfully and boldly. Perhps some think that is "cold" but that is the best journalism/writing.
"the question of pity...".
