"She dressed every morning with a greater sense of purpose than she had felt in some time: a cotton skirt, a jersey, sandals she could kick off when she wanted the touch of the accelerator..."

We could talk for hours about Joan Didion, but won't — just know that if you are a post-adolescent woman (or if you know a post-adolescent woman) reading her is very important. This is her only true novel: lots of dreams, lots of driving, lots of ennui... and our heroine, Maria Wyeth, has pretty great style to boot.1960s LA is sunbleached and bleak in this story, but the prose is so perfect that you'll be ready to move there anyway.
