The Last Love Song

The Last Love SongJoan Didion lived a public and private life with her late husband, the writer John Gregory Dunne, whom she met while the two were working in New York City while Didion was at Vogue and Dunne was writing for Time. They became wildly successful partners when they moved to Los Angeles and co-wrote screenplays and adaptations. Didion is well-known for her literary journalistic style in both fiction and non-fiction, and for The Year of Magical Thinking, a National Book Award winner shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize, which dealt with Didion’s grief after the loss of her husband and daughter. THE LAST LOVE SONG takes readers on a journey through time, following a young Didion in Sacramento all the way to her adult life as a writer. The book reads as compellingly as fiction; lifelong fans, and readers learning about Didion for the first time, will be enthralled by this impressive tribute.
