The Year of Magical Thinking, by Joan Didion
Categorized in: 52 Books/52 Weeks
Didion’s memoir about the year her husband died and her daughter almost did. I found her lifestyle a little irritating, but the book is a clinic on writing mechanics. The writing is so spare, so lean, so technically perfect that each sentence compels you to continue and is a deep, intense joy.
