New York Journal of Books publishes a review of "Blue Nights" by Joan Didion

NYJB reviewer Vinton Rafe McCabe writes, "Here, in a book that exists within the context of the blue nights, the gloaming, she conjures her daughter Q, evokes her spirit—and finds it so very full of life."
Nov. 9, 2011 - PRLog -- New York Journal of Books cites the emotional depth of Didion's new work. "The simple poetry of Blue Nights identifies it as a work of Joan Didion. But the context of it—a human being, alone, disconnected, and playing dead—suggests the work of an author now profoundly changed by age and circumstances who is using the best and sharpest tool at her disposal—her placement of ideas on the page—as a means of discovery for what is ahead."
