Slouching Towards Bethlehem: EssaysSlouching Towards Bethlehem: Essays by Joan Didion

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Joan Didion is an incredibly gifted writer who probes her subjects, whether they are persons (including herself), places (California, NYC), or movements (visiting Haight-Ashbury in the 60's). Beautiful prose and a smart, critical eye. Yes, it is very much a piece of its time (the 1960's), but it captures that zeitgeist of that time, as this country and its people try to find themselves.
