South and West: From a Notebook, Joan Didion (Knopf)

The first book in six years from Didion, possibly America’s greatest living writer, is a departure from her best-known works. It’s not exactly an essay collection, but rather a series of excerpts from notebooks she used when writing about a road trip through the South with her husband and while assigned to cover the Patty Hearst trial in San Francisco.
