Book Summary:

In this dramatic adaptation of her award-winning, bestselling memoir, Joan Didion transforms the story of the sudden and unexpected loss of her husband and their only daughter into a stunning and powerful one-woman play. “This happened on December 30, 2003. That may seem a while ago but it won’t when it happens to you . . .” Michiko Kakutani in The New York Times called the memoir that was the basis for the play, “an indelible portrait of loss and grief . . . a haunting portrait of a four-decade-long marriage." The first theatrical production of The Year of Magical Thinking opened at the Booth Theatre on March 29, 2007, starring Vanessa Redgrave and directed by David Hare.

Book Summary:

Alan Moore writes: "Lionel Snell is, in my opinion, the most lucid, coherent and insightful intellect to emerge from British occultism for some several decades, and in My Years of Magical Thinking he presents his most considered and powerfully reasoned work to date. With an amiable and amusing clarity, aimed at the mainstream rather than at an audience already persuaded to esoteric notions, Snell presents his fascinating models of human cultural development and provides his own convincing answer to that disenchanted modern query, ¿whatever happened to the Enlightenment?¿ Crackling with fresh ideas and perspectives, heavy with the sense that a reconsideration of occult concepts might offer solutions to some contemporary dilemmas, My Years of Magical Thinking is a sane and sensible meditation upon a subject that is often dismissed as anything but, as well as a pinnacle of current magical theory. Highly recommended.">

Book Summary:

The “dazzling” and essential portrayal of 1960s America from the author of South and West and The Year of Magical Thinking (The New York Times). Capturing the tumultuous landscape of the United States, and in particular California, during a pivotal era of social change, the first work of nonfiction from one of American literature’s most distinctive prose stylists is a modern classic. In twenty razor-sharp essays that redefined the art of journalism, National Book Award–winning author Joan Didion reports on a society gripped by a deep generational divide, from the “misplaced children” dropping acid in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district to Hollywood legend John Wayne filming his first picture after a bout with cancer. She paints indelible portraits of reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes and folk singer Joan Baez, “a personality before she was entirely a person,” and takes readers on eye-opening journeys to Death Valley, Hawaii, and Las Vegas, “the most extreme and allegorical of American settlements.” First published in 1968, Slouching Towards Bethlehem has been heralded by the New York Times Book Review as “a rare display of some of the best prose written today in this country” and named to Time magazine’s list of the one hundred best and most influential nonfiction books. It is the definitive account of a terrifying and transformative decade in American history whose discordant reverberations continue to sound a half-century later.
