Starred Review Many will greet this taut, clear eyed memoir of grief as a long awaited return to the terrain of Didion s venerated, increasingly rare personal essays The author of Slouching Towards Bethlehem and 11 other works chronicles the year following the death of her husband, fellow writer John Gregory Dunne, from a massive heart attack on December 30, 2003, while the couple s only daughter, Quintana, lay unconscious in a nearby hospital suffering from pneumonia and septic shock Dunne and Didion had lived and worked side by side for nearly 40 years, and Dunne s death propelled Didion into a state she calls magical thinking We might expect that we will be prostrate, inconsolable, crazy with loss, she writes We do not expect to be literally crazy, cool customers who believe that their husband is about to return and need his shoes Didion s mourning follows a traditional arcshe describes just how precisely it cleaves to the medical descriptions of griefbut her elegant rendition of its stages leads to hard won insight, particularly into the aftereffects of marriage Marriage is not only time it is also, paradoxically, the denial of time For forty years I saw myself through John s eyes I did not age In a sense, all of Didion s fiction, with its themes of loss and bereavement, served as preparation for the writing of this memoir, and there is occasionally a curious hint of repetition, despite the immediacy and intimacy of the subject matter Still, this is an indispensable addition to Didion s body of work and a lyrical, disciplined entry in the annals of mourning literature Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Didion s husband, the writer John Gregory Dunne, died of a heart attack, just after they had returned from the hospital where their only child, Quintana, was lying in a coma This book is a memoir of Dunne s death, Quintana s illness, and Didion s efforts to make sense of a time when nothing made sense She s a pretty cool customer, one hospital worker says of her, and, certainly, coolness was always part of the addictive appeal of Didion s writing The other part was the dark side of cool, the hyper nervous awareness of the tendency of things to go bad In 2004, Didion had her own disasters to deal with, and she did not, she feels, deal with them coolly, or even sanely This book is about getting a grip and getting on it s also a tribute to an extraordinary marriage Copyright 2005 The New Yorker Pornhub s Year in Review Pornhub Insights The popularity of these search terms is
