    Buy Slouching Towards Bethlehem at Amazon

    Slouching Towards Bethlehem


    "I can remember first reading Slouching Towards Bethlehem in college and thinking, 'Where has Joan Didion been all my life?' My next thought was: 'I absolutely need to read more.' Fast forward two years later, and I still have a quotes from “On Self-Respect” and “On Keeping a Notebook" hanging on my apartment wall. I read and reread “Goodbye to All That”—Didion’s essay on leaving New York City—whenever I’m feeling disillusioned with city life. I have so many memories wrapped up in this collection, it’s impossible for me not to love it. It’s also the perfect introduction to Didion’s work!" —Olivia Mason, Assistant Editor
