Joan Didion lived a life in the public and private eye with her late husband, writer John Gregory Dunne. The two were wildly successful writing partners when they moved to Los Angeles and co-wrote screenplays and adaptations together. Didion is well-known for her literary journalistic style in both fiction and non-fiction. Some of her most- notable work includes Slouching Towards Bethlehem, Run River, and The Year of Magical Thinking, a National Book Award winner and shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize, it dealt with the grief surrounding Didion after the loss of her husband and daughter. Daughtery takes readers on a journey back through time, following a young Didion 3% in Sacramento through to her adult life as a writer interviewing those who know and knew her personally, while maintaining a respectful distance from the reclusive literary great. Lifelong fans and readers learning about Didion for the first time will be enthralled with this impressive tribute.
