Joan Didion

Description. Lang: en

Joan Didion (; born December 5, 1934) is an American essayist known for conveying her moral sensibility through a highly accomplished use of syntax. In the late Sixties, Didion's reportage brought Californian subcultures to wider attention. Her political writing often concentrated on the subtext of rhetoric. In 1991 she wrote the earliest mainstream media article to suggest the Central Park Five had been wrongfully convicted.  In 2005, she won the National Book Award for Nonfiction and was a finalist for both the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Biography/Autobiography for The Year of Magical Thinking. She later adapted the book into a play, which premiered on Broadway in 2007. In 2017, Didion was profiled in the Netflix documentary The Center Will Not Hold, directed by her nephew Griffin Dunne.
