The Year of Magical Thinking
From iconic writer Joan Didion, this is an achingly beautiful book of electric honesty and passion – layered with the poignant simplicity of how life accumulates in the small details.
This award-winning memoir is an account of the year following Didion's husband's sudden death. Didion explores an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of love and loss. Simply put, this is a "classic," as stated by The Class Teacher, Brooke Roth.
"Profoundly moving and painfully candid, The Year of Magical Thinking is a raw, meticulous, and heartbreaking masterpiece. Didion is unparalleled when it comes to story-telling that provokes emotion. Even reflecting on the novel now, I can feel the same particular mourning and healing her words inflicted when I first read this years ago. Didion did a service to us all by giving us this window into her soul as she processed deep grief in all of its tragic and beautiful forms." - Gemma Colón, The Class Retail Manager
