Synopsis

Vintage Readers are a perfect introduction to some of the greatest modern writers presented in attractive, accessible paperback editions.

“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 Didionincludes three chapters fromMiami; an excerpt fromSalvador; and three separate essays fromAfter Henry that cover topics from Ronald Reagan to the Central Park jogger case.Also included is “Clinton Agonistes” fromPolitical Fictions ,and “Fixed Opinions, or the Hinge of History,” a scathing analysis of the ongoing war on terror.
