New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2005.

First edition of the account of the year following the death of the author’s husband. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed by Joan Didion on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Carol Devine Carson.

From one of America’s iconic writers, a stunning book of electric honesty and passion. Joan Didion explores an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage--and a life, in good times and bad--that will speak to anyone who has ever loved a husband or wife or child. “Thrilling . . . a living, sharp, and memorable book. . . . An exact, candid, and penetrating account of personal terror and bereavement . . . sometimes quite funny because it dares to tell the truth" (Robert Pinsky, The New York Times Book Review). It went on to win the 2005 National Book Award for Nonfiction and was a finalist for both the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Biography/Autobiography. It was adapted to Broadway in 2007, directed by David Hare, opening with Vanessa Redgrave as the sole cast member.
