Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Joan Didion's savage masterpiece, which, since first publication in 1968, has been acknowledged as an unparalleled report on the state of America during the upheaval of the Sixties Revolution. We forget all too soon the things we thought we could never forget. We forget the loves and the betrayals alike, forget what we whispered and what we screamed, forget who we were In her non-fiction work, Joan Didion not only describes the subject at hand - her younger self loving and leaving New York, the murderous housewife, the little girl trailing the rock group, the millionaire bunkered in his mansion - but also offers a broader vision of the world, one that is both terrifying and tender, ominous and uniquely her own.

"Didion's essays of a world featuring barricades and bombings, mass murders and kidnapped heiresses make recent history as filtered through her seem a savage and passionate drama, something you can put a hand on and feel it beating, something you can put your ear to and hear its story." VILLAGE VOICE "Brilliant, troubling, indelible tales and reflections." SAN DIEGO TRIBUNE "Reveals a wholly original analytic mind, a sensibility as expansive and idiosyncratic as a 19th-century novelist's." MONA SIMPSON "Our quintessential essayist." JERRY KOSINSKI, 'LA Times'
