For Didion fans, this deeply personal chronicle of her immersion in grief is a must travel, road full of diamonds. Even as she doubts her powers, she brings fully to bear the intense scrutiny, relentless pursuit of the truth and candid irony that we've come to recognize as her signature to author an important addition to the discourse on death and loss. It's an emotional ride – I teared up nearly every time I picked up the book – that will summon and engage each reader's unique experience with trauma and mortality.
