We're in good company-

Joan Didion is also uncomfortable by all the blogging that's going on in the world right now. And before you get all impressed with my hip 70's author reference, in full disclosure I admit that my very well read friend Erin A. actually sent me the link to this article. I myself have only read one Joan Didion book (Play It as It Lays) and would never be cool enough to have come across this myself.

Now let's all turn off our computers, climb into our cars and just drive until the freeway stops. I'll pack the Coke.


  1. You must read the essay "Goodbye to All That" from her book Slouching Toward Bethlehem. It's about falling out of love with NYC and being 28 and all the bad decisions of the past catching up with her. It's perfect.

    I also read Play It As It Lays and love her essays MUCH more than her fiction.

  2. Oooh, good call Anjali- I loved that essay. I wonder if I'd feel the same way about it now. Great post.

  3. I will put it at the top of my reading list and report back to both of you! xo
