I finished reading The Year of Magical Thinking and have to say that this was a hard book to get through. Didion's writing was hard to read, hard to understand, and easy and relatable, in turns.
Joan Didion's husband of 40 years died and then she tried to wish and think him back alive. This book is her journey through grief and mourning (the differences of which she explains briefly but very well).
I think anyone who has lost someone close to them can relate to her writing: the memories that come from a trigger of seeing or hearing something you shared, the pain that is ever present.
