Joan Didion: The 1960s & 70s

January 9, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm PST


Editor David L. Ulin in conversation with Oscar Villalon, Managing Editor, ZYZZYVA
Cosponsored by Alta Magazine

Cool, dispassionate, and incisive, Joan Didion’s voice is electric on the page. Using autobiographical elements to stunning literary effect, she has captured the anarchic convulsions and anxious contradictions of the waning American century and the coming new millennium with incomparable clarity and force. Now, Library of America inaugurates a definitive three-volume edition of Didion’s collected writings with the landmark works of the 1960s and 1970s, books that established her as one of the most original and influential literary figures of our time.
