[In this book, the author] 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. Several days before Christmas 2003, John Gregory Dunne and Joan Didion saw their only daughter, Quintana, fall ill with what seemed at first flu, then pneumonia, then complete septic shock. She was put into an induced coma and placed on life support. Days later - the night before New Year's Eve - the Dunnes were just sitting down to dinner after visiting the hospital when John Gregory Dunne suffered a massive and fatal coronary. In a second, this close, symbiotic partnership of forty years was over. Four weeks later, their daughter pulled through. Two months after that, arriving at LAX, she collapsed and underwent six hours of brain surgery at UCLA Medical Center to relieve a massive hematoma. This ... book is Didion's attempt to make sense of the "weeks and then months that cut loose any fixed idea I ever had about death, about illness . . . about marriage and children and memory . . . about the shallowness of sanity, about life itself." -Dust jacket.… (més)

Smuk skildring af et langt ægteskab og det følgende år efter ægtemandens død.
En meget intens beskrivelse af sorgens forløb. ( )

I can't quite describe Didion's writing, other than when I read her work, I feel like someone has pulled the warmest, softest blanket over me and I am in a place of peace and rest. Even with this topic, which is heartbreaking.

I haven't lost anyone in death as important to me as John Dunne was to her, but I've felt similar grief with other losses in my life. Those descriptions of grief were hard to read at times. But throughout the book, I found my expectations of marriage shifting once again. If I ever should get married, I want to have a marriage that leaves me in a similar state of grief as Didion describes. Morbid? Perhaps. But as she writes about their lunches and dinners and movies and day-to-day operations as a couple, their dependency on each other is what I want. Hard to describe without referencing specific pages numbers.

I borrowed this from the library, but I'll be buying my own copy to read again and mark up. Amazing book. ( )

Some interesting thoughts on how you cope with the death of a partner - but not knowing her other work means I don’t have a context

read for Wordies at Maureen's - before I moved back to Portland - Lori was living in Oakland at the time and told me she hadn't liked the book - once I got home to Placerville and thought about it - agreed - no idea why but I just didn't ( )

Essayistic and concise, seeking external points of comparison, trying to set her case in some wider context.

afegit per melmore | editaLondon Review of Books, Michael Wood (Web de pagament) (Jan 5, 2006)
 
The book is, as promised, extraordinary. The Year of Magical Thinking is raw, brutal, compact, precise, immediate, literate, and, given the subject matter, astonishingly readable.
afegit per melmore | editaSlate.com, Peter D. Kramer (Oct 17, 2005)
 
Though the material is literally terrible, the writing is exhilarating and what unfolds resembles an adventure narrative: a forced expedition into those "cliffs of fall" identified by Hopkins.
 
The Year of Magical Thinking , though it spares nothing in describing Didion's confusion, grief and derangement, is a work of surpassing clarity and honesty. It may not provide "meaning" to her husband's death or her daughter's illness, but it describes their effects on her with unsparing candor. It was not written as a self-help handbook for the bereaved but as a journey into a place that none of us can fully imagine until we have been there.

I remember thinking that I needed to discuss this with John.
Confronted with sudden disaster we all focus on how unremarkable the circumstances were in which the unthinkable occurred, the clear blue sky from which the plane fell, the routine errand that ended on the shoulder with the car in flames.
