From one of America’ s iconic writers, a stunning book of electric honesty and passion. Joan Didion explores an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage--and a life, in good times and bad--that will speak to anyone who has ever loved a husband or wife or child.

Review Quotes:
“ Thrilling . . . a living, sharp, and memorable book. . . . An exact, candid, and penetrating account of personal terror and bereavement . . . sometimes quite funny because it dares to tell the truth.”
— Robert Pinsky, "The New York Times Book Review"
“ Stunning candor and piercing details. . . . An indelible portrait of loss and grief.”
— Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"
“ I can’ t think of a book we need more than hers. . . . I can’ t imagine dying without this book.”
— John Leonard, "New York Review of Books"
“ Achingly beautiful. . . . We have come to admire and love Didion for her preternatural poise, unrivaled eye for absurdity, and Orwellian distaste for cant. It is thus a difficult, moving, and extraordinarily poignant experience to watch her direct such scrutiny inward.”
— Gideon Lewis-Kraus, "Los Angeles Times"
“ An act of consummate literary bravery, a writer known for her clarity allowing us to watch her mind as it becomes clouded with grief. . . . It also skips backward in time ]to( call up a shimmering portrait of her unique marriage. . . . To make her grief real, Didion shows us what she has lost.”
— Lev Grossman, "Time"
