The Year of Magical Thinking

Not Available

As one of America’s most perceptive novelists and essayists, Joan Didion had often examined suffering with her firm, analytical gaze and her well-developed sense for the cruel ironies of life. Then, within a year, her beloved husband and her only child died, and the suffering she found herself examining in appalled fascination was her own.

Cruel lessons. Based on Joan Didion’s best-selling memoir, The Year of Magical Thinking is a journey from contentment into the dark underworld of grief, anger and bewilderment, and beyond.
