Slouching Towards Bethlehem by Joan Didion

Image of Slouching Towards Bethlehem

This collection of essays takes the reader on a psychological tour of the intense, wayward, violent, not a little crazy America of the 1960s. Surfers, students, deadheads and druggies; Joan Baez, Dean Martin, Howard Hughes and John Wayne - all emerge from Didion's gaze just that little bit weirder, that little bit more American. Joan Didion has also written Sentimental Journeys and The White Album.
