Summary

From one of our most powerful writers, a work of stunning frankness about losing a daughter. Richly textured with memories from her own childhood and married life with her husband, John Gregory Dunne, and daughter, Quintana Roo, this new book by Joan Didion is an intensely personal and moving account of her thoughts, fears, and doubts regarding having children, illness and growing old. As she reflects on her daughter's life and on her role as a parent, Didion grapples with the candid questions that all parents face, and contemplates her age, something she finds hard to acknowledge, much less accept. Blue Nights-the long, light evening hours that signal the summer solstice, "the opposite of the dying of the brightness, but also its warning"-like The Year of Magical Thinkingbefore it, is an iconic book of incisive and electric honesty, haunting and profound.
