Let Me Tell You What I Mean by Joan Didion 149 pages

After watching the Joan Didion documentary, Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold, I was eager to check out her new book of essays. This collection includes a dozen essays that she wrote between 1986 and 2000. Although her subjects are as diverse as Martha Steward, being rejected by a first choice college, and the reason she is a writer, each displays Didion’s clear, concise prose. Actually the title of this book is misleading; Joan Didion never directly tells us what she means. Instead, her examples make her ideas, thoughts, likes and dislikes perfectly clear,

If you have never read Joan Didion, Let Me Tell You What I Mean would not be the work I’d start with, but if you’re a fan, this group of essays and the documentary are musts.
