"The fancy that extraterrestrial life is by definition of a higher order than our own is one that soothes all children, and many writers." -- Joan Didion
Joan Didion (born December 5, 1934) is an American author best known as a novelist and writer of personalized, journalistic essays. The disintegration of American morals and cultural chaos upon which her essays comment are explored more fully in her novels, where the overriding theme is individual and social fragmentation. A sense of anxiety or dread permeates much of her work.
