A Book to Read and Love: The White Album - Joan Didion


A short summary of The White Album:

More essays by Joan.

My favorite quote from the book:

"A place belongs forever to whoever claims it hardest, remembers it most obsessively, wrenches it from itself, shapes it, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his image."



Questions to ponder while reading The White Album:

Has crime gotten better or worse since the 1960s?

Has the women's movement become more effective?

My thoughts about the book:

I love Joan Didion's work.

I agree with much of her philosophy.

I love her command of the language.
