Joan Didion is a writer of great talent, and this memoir setting forth her process of grief after the death of her husband, John Gregory Dunne, is powerful.
And perhaps that was the point, but in the end I felt that I should not have read the book, and that's never something I like to feel after finishing a book.
Too much of the book is spent excerpting from those works and extrapolating her own feelings to them instead of her writing more directly about how she felt.
