Play It As It Laysav Joan Didion115Skickas inom 5-8 vardagar.
Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.A profoundly disturbing novel that ruthlessly dissects American life in the late 1960s, from the author of The White Albumand The Year of Magical Thinking. Benny called for a round of Cuba Libres and I gave him some chips to play for me and went to the ladies' room and never came back. Somewhere out beyond Hollywood, hollowed-out actress Maria Wyeth's life plays out in a numbing routine of perpetual freeway driving. In her early thirties, divorced from her husband, dislocated from friends, anesthetized to pain and please, Wheth is a woman who has run out of both desires and motives - the epitome of a generation made ill by too much freedom.
