Slouching Towards Bethlehem: Essays (FSG Classics)

Slouching Towards Bethlehem: Essays (FSG Classics)

Author Joan Didion
Publisher Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Publication Date 2008-10-28
Section Essays
Type New
Format Paperback
ISBN 9780374531386

The first nonfiction work by one of the most distinctive prose stylists of our era, Slouching Towards Bethlehem remains, forty years after its first publication, the essential portrait of America— particularly California—in the sixties. It focuses on such subjects as John Wayne and Howard Hughes, growing up a girl in California, ruminating on the nature of good and evil in a Death Valley motel room, and, especially, the essence of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury, the heart of the counterculture.
