Wren's Reviews

I treat this book like I would a religious text, if I were religious; I take it with me every time I leave the house, I write all over it, I quote passages back to people, I read it before bed. Part memoir, part love letter, part queer familial ethnography, and part critical theory, Nelson sets an astounding precedent for the newly emerging genre of auto-theory. - Wren

You might think you're not interested in orchids, or the Hoover Dam, or in Caltrans' creation of the "diamond lane" in LA, but that's because you haven't talked to Joan about it. Insightful, poetic critiques of class and socio-political events combine with compelling portraits of California in the 70's and of Didion herself in this informative and entertaining read. - Wren
