… The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion with 58% of the vote. This is a true story written by a woman about the year following the death of her husband. I have had a copy of this book on my shelf for a few months now and am looking forward to reading it with you.
This book was recently made into a play that is playing on Broadway staring Vanessa Redgrave. I would love to see this show but being that I live in Okinawa right now, I don’t see that happening. I also came across an article in the New York Times about this book. In it the columnist assures us that though the book is about tragic events that occurred in this woman’s family, it is an uplifting and inspiring read.
I hope you enjoy it. I also hope that for those of you who voted for one of the other selections this month, that you find the time to read that book too.
