Miami

'“The world Miss Didion describes in beautifully evocative prose is that familiar landscape we have learned to expect from her novels and essays, a world of menace and elliptical connections. . . . The story [she] tells is a compassionate tale of Washington’s ‘seduction and betrayal’ of the Cuban exiles.” —The New York Times Book Review   “In book after book, essay after essay, in fiction as well as nonfiction, she writes and thinks with exceptional rigor and originality, makes connections both abstract and specific with skill and grace, and brilliantly marshals masses of detail. . . . Miami [is] Joan Didion’s most ambitious nonfiction work yet. . . . A brilliant book.” —The Washington Post   “[Didion] has an excellent eye for detail, a sense of the phrase or image that tells the whole story. . . . An insightful book.” —The Christian Science Monitor   “Finely tuned . . . [Miami] turns much sunny light into a murky underwater darkness full of sharks and evil shadows.” —The New York Times   “To understand America . . . I recommend Miami.” —New Statesman   “Didion’s Miami is a kaleidoscope of impressions, and a litany of violence, intrigue, vengeance, political manipulation, and broken dreams.” —The Boston Globe   “By combining her novelist’s ear and journalist’s eye, Didion gives the reader a sense of the never-ending feeling of exile that is locked in the heart of every refugee. . . . Masterful.” —Library Journal  Praise for Joan Didion “She has been an articulate witness to the most stubborn and intractable truths of our time, a memorable voice, partly eulogistic, partly despairing; always in control.” —Joyce Carol Oates, The New York Times Book Review  '
