February '24 - Book of the Month

The memoir 'The Year of Magical Thinking' penned by Joan Didion delves into the author's journey navigating the unexpected loss of her spouse and the illness afflicting their daughter. Through its pages, Didion presents a poignant and unvarnished examination of grief and the complexities of the human experience.

“An act of consummate literary bravery, a writer known for her clarity allowing us to watch her mind as it becomes clouded with grief. . . . It also skips backward in time [to] call up a shimmering portrait of her unique marriage. . . . To make her grief real, Didion shows us what she has lost.”

—Lev Grossman, Time
