The Year of Magical Thinking

Winner of the National Book Award 2005

Just before Christmas 2003, John Gregory Dunne's and Joan Didion's only daughter, Quintana, fell ill. At first they thought it was flu, then pneumonia, then complete sceptic shock. She was put into a coma and placed on life support. Days later - the night before New Year's Eve - the Dunnes were just sitting down to dinner after visiting the hospital when John suffered a massive and fatal heart attack. In a second, this close, symbiotic partnership of 40 years was over. Four weeks later, their daughter pulled through. Two months after that, she collapsed and underwent six hours of brain surgery. This powerful book is Didion's attempt to make sense of this time of tragedy. The result is an exploration of an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage, and a life, in good times and bad.
Portrait
Joan Didion was born in California and lives in New York. She is the author of five novels and seven previous books of nonfiction: among them the great portraits of a decade in essays, 'Sentimental Journeys', 'The White Album', and 'Slouching Towards Bethlehem'.
