Collected in this first volume are Didion’s five iconic books from the 1960s and 1970s:Run River,Slouching Towards Bethlehem,Play It As It Lays,A Book of Common Prayer, andThe White Album. Whether writing about countercultural San Francisco, the Las Vegas wedding industry, Lucille Miller, Charles Manson, or the shopping mall, Didion achieves a wonderful negative sublimity without condemning her subjects or condescending to her readers. Chiefly about California, these books display Didion’s genius for finding exactly the right language and tone to capture America’s broken twilight landscape at a moment of headlong conflict and change.
