South and West: From a Notebook Joan Didion












Beauregard Redmond, soon to be MrsThis book gives brilliant profiles, especially of the Deep SouthI swallowed a piece of ice.“And we get it," the old woman said after a while.It was a fatalism I would come to recognize as endemic to the particular tone of New Orleans lifeShe is one of our last living national treasures--read Didion and you cannot go wrongPlease try again laterTomorrow, the Fourth of July, Americans will celebrate their independence, the birth of a free nationIn the least economically defensible argument in favor of the Better Care Reconciliation Act, some Republicans have taken to pointing to an increase in nominal Medicaid spending as a defense against claims that the Senates Obamacare repeal cuts MedicaidI know now that eating pica is common in the undernourished South, just as I know now why the driver of the bus on the first Thursday we went out to Duke refused to leave the curb until we had moved from the back seat to the front, but I did not know it thenThe purpose of the trip is unclear even to DidionKnopf

In his view, the Grand Canyon formed after Noahs floodShe was just trying to understand a people she couldn't understandResearchers tested the blood of 61 babies whose deaths were characterized as SIDS and found that nearly one-third of them had increased levels of the neurotransmitter in their bloodFollow Michiko Kakutani on Twitter: michikokakutani A version of this review appears in print on March 7, 2017, on Page C1 of the New York edition with the headline: A Chasm Uncannily ForetoldI should appreciate the grace, the beauty of their way of lifeSouth and West is vital, ultimately, for how it demonstrates (even inadvertently) how such a tension plays out." —Colin Dickey, The Los Angeles Review of Books “Youll learn more about Americas future from Didions 40-year-old field notes&than you will from tomorrows newspaper." —Esquire “South and West: From a Notebook reveals the author at her most fascinatingly unfiltered, recording folksy vernacular at a motel pool, having G & Ts with Walker Percy, and searching fruitlessly for Faulkner’s grave in an Oxford cemetery…her riffs on everything from Gertrude Atherton to crossing the Golden Gate bridge for the first time in three-inch heels captures the thrill of a writer discovering her richest subject: the American mythologies that governed her own romantic girlhood, a yearning for an MGM-style heritage that never really was—a yearning that feels freshly perilous in its delusions." —Megan O’Grady, Vogue “There’s a universal rule against reading someone else’s diary—but in this case, it’s not just OK, it’s required reading." —Marie Claire “The power of [Didion’s] work—her ability to precisely articulate feelings, atmosphere, and undercurrents, [is] on striking display in this slender volume…Didion’s notes are remarkably polished and slicing in their response to place, conversations overheard and instigated, perceptions of social attitudes, and detection of hypocrisy, irony, and injustice; they shimmer with dark implicationsAnd reading Joan offers the reader an intimate look at her writing processTake those vitamins

The snakes, the rotting undergrowth, sulphurous light: the images are so specifically those of the nightmare world that when we stopped for gas, or directions, I had to steel myself, deaden every nerve, in order to step from the car onto the crushed oyster shells in front of the gas stationWe went wherever the day took usApr 01, 2017 Michael Neiberg rated it it was amazing I first read Joan Didion when I was 19Her collected nonfiction,We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live, was published by Everymans Library in 2006Twitter Email Most Popular Presented by Katie Martin / The Atlantic How the Left Lost Its Mind McKay Coppins Polemicists, conspiracists, and outright fabulists are feeding an alternative media landscapewhere the implausibility of a claim is no bar to its acceptanceThey lostFrom the Publisher “South and West is a compelling book — rooted utterly in a past now all but lost to us, while also incredibly timely and relevant.[it] bears the hallmarks of Didion’s sparkling prose: her use of detail, juxtaposition, and compression.sentence fragment, description, and insight.Originally written in the 1970s as a pair of diaries, it finally sees the light of day at a moment when California and the Real America of the South are warring over the soul of the countryI am too accustomed to agriculture as agribusiness, the rich vistas of the California valleys where all the resources of Standard Oil and the University of California have been brought to bear on glossy constant productivityAbout Joan Didion JOAN DIDIONis the author of five novels and nine books of nonfiction(Didion herself has allowed some of that: Im not very interested in people, she once acknowledged.) Here, though, with South and West, are those critiques answeredwith the warm transparency of an open notebook, with the humble acknowledgement that even someone of Didions caliber is so deeply capable of failure

The effect is lively and avaricious and intensely self-absorbed, a tone not uncommon in colonial cities, and the principal reason I find such cities invigoratingPublishers Weekly 01/09/2017Even in raw form, Didion’s (Blue Nights) voice surpasses other writers’ in “elegance and clarity," Nathaniel Rich astutely observes in his introduction to Didion’s notebooks from her 1970 trip to Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi and much shorter 1976 musings about her California youthShe had tried many other things before it became obvious that, for Joan Didion, writing was the only thing.Related Story Could the Internet Age See Another David Foster Wallace? And then she broke the bad newsBut that shared history does little, in Didions view, to elucidate what happened, to explain how one of them became a member of the Symbionese Liberation Army and the other an essayist and a novelistEarl “Elbow" Reum has more personality than I 48a4f088c3
