Writing this as I'm about to start THE LAST THING HE WANTED.

Frankly, I feel like Ms. Didion is a writer only as good as her editor. Not in terms of the visceral beauty of the prose itself but her ability to communicate with clarity. Much of the writing in this volume feels obtuse, like it's not quite meant to be understood by anybody other than Ms. Didion herself, and I think this is in stark contrast to her earlier work, which was constructed seemingly in order to be comprehensible to as large an audience as possible. I image (though of course, I cannot be certain) that this has to do largely with her shift away from magazines like VOGUE to magazines like the NYRoB. Perhaps with the shift in nonfiction editors, she was allowed or encouraged to take her writing in different directions. I don't know. But I am certain that I prefer the books Ms. Didion published in the 60s and 70s over these works (from the 80s and 90s). The sentences were both simpler in construction and shorter in length. Oblique or otherwise initially unclear ideas were given greater detail. Certain parts of the earlier nonfiction were elaborated on, rather than presumed known. During the 80s and 90s, it seems, Joan Didion was no longer able to transcend time as she had in the 60s and 70s, but became mired in the stuff, sinking in it like one would sink in quicksand.

Post TLTHW update: The second and final novel did not change my opinions. Ms. Didion's old style and voice seemed to be back, but she had lost the magic of the characters of Jack and Inez from DEMOCRACY and so the novel fell flat in its attempts to recreate them in Treat and Elena. ( )
