Slouching Towards Bethlehem – Joan Didion

You should try to leave a travel ticket in a book if you go abroad and read the book. Or if you stay at home even. I last read this book on the way to and home from Madrid in 2014. I went with my wife and my parents and had a good time in the sun and the parks and museums for several days. Madrileanos are inconceivably rude but people say the same about Parisians. And they are just fine. 

Joan Didion is a person I would like to drink a Jasmine tea with. I am not interested in her fame or acclaim. I do not care about that. But I like her warmth. I feel we would have a lot to say to one another. Or nothing. But I would like to meet Joan Didion. She is a person I would like to meet.
