This is not, as I once suspected, a self-help book, and there aren't, as I once thought, tips here on how to embrace magical thinking.

Written by Joan Didion, Audiobook narrated by Barbara Caruso. From one of our most powerful writers, a work of stunning frankness about losing a daughter. Extremely moving memoir, well-narrated.
Among the letters and books and magazines that had arrived while I was in Los Angeles was a thick volume called Lives of ’54, prepared for what was by then the imminent fiftieth reunion of John’s class at Princeton. I looked up John’s entry. It read: William Faulkner once said that a writer’s obituary should read, ‘He wrote books, then he died.
