“Didion has the instincts of an exceptional reporter and the focus of a historian . . . a novelist’s appreciation of the surreal.” — Los Angeles Times Book Review

Whether she’s writing about civil war in Central America, political scurrility in Washington, or the tightl -braided myths and realities of her native California, Joan Didion expresses an unblinking vision of the truth.

Vintage Didion includes three chapters from Miami; an excerpt from Salvador ; and three separate essays from After Henry that cover topics from Ronald Reagan to the Central Park jogger case . Also included is “Clinton Agonistes” from Political Fictions , and “Fixed Opinions, or the Hinge of History,” a scathing analysis of the ongoing war on terror.
