World According to Joan Didion

«

'Shaped by intellectual rigor and artistic grace in chapters coalescing around totem objects that figured prominently in Didion’s life and imagination … McDonnell’s portrait is vibrant, fluent, sensitive, and clarifying' Booklist (starred review)

'For the Joan Didion fan in your life, this is a must…Smart and concise, it's a welcome and clarifying look at a hugely influential figure' Esquire

'Evelyn McDonnell has written a wonderfully fitting tribute to Joan Didion: one that avoids simple platitudes, approaching the great writer with a fierce, probing intelligence, flawless language, and the impulse, which drove Didion's finest work, to understand the dreams of another' Hua Hsu, Pulitzer-winning author of Stay True

'McDonnell, a writer and journalism professor at Loyola Marymount University, wisely stays away from traditional biography. Instead, she sets out to create ‘more of a notebook’ about Didion, to capture ‘what it was for her to be her, at different places and different times.’ Illustrations by the Brooklyn artist Anne Muntges enhance the tender, diary-like feel' Wall Street Journal

'McDonnell offers a thoughtful assessment of Didion’s importance but doesn’t shy away from Didion’s flaws…An appreciative portrait of an iconic author' Kirkus Reviews

'McDonnell’s deep knowledge and expertise shines brightly in The World According to to Joan Didion, a heartfelt guide to Didion’s wide library of work that will not only serve newcomers looking to dive in, but also change the long-standing perceptions of the many who’ve read Didion’s classics numerous times' Alex Segura, bestselling author of Secret Identity

'A brilliant, visceral interpretation of "the queen of California Noir"' Allison Wolfe, of Bratmobile and cofounder of the Riot Grrrl Movement
