ZUM TOD DER US-AMERIKANISCHEN JOURNALISTIN, ESSAYISTIN UND SCHRIFTSTELLERIN JOAN DIDION

ZUM TOD DER US-AMERIKANISCHEN JOURNALISTIN, ESSAYISTIN UND SCHRIFTSTELLERIN JOAN DIDION

23.12.2021 Die am 5. Dezember 1934 in Sacramento (Kalifornien) geborene US-amerikanische Journalistin, Essayistin, Schriftstellerin und Drehbuchautorin Joan Didion (Bild) ist am 23. Dezember 2021 in Manhattan (New York) gestorben. Didion schrieb regelmässig für "The New York Review of Books" und "The New Yorker". Sie verfasste fünf Romane und viele nicht-fiktionale Bücher. In Didions Werken geht es oft um Kalifornien, speziell in den Sechzigerjahren des 20. Jahrhunderts. Ihre Schilderungen von Verschwörungstheoretikern, Paranoikern und Soziopathen gelten heute als fester Bestandteil amerikanischer Literatur.* 1981 wurde Joan Didion in die American Academy of Arts and Letters und 1989 in die American Academy of Arts and Sciences gewählt. Ab 2006 war sie gewähltes Mitglied der American Philosophical Society. Im Jahr 2005 erhielt Didion den National Book Award (Nonfiction) für "The Year of Magical Thinking".

She established a distinctive voice in American fiction before turning to political reporting and screenplay writing. But it was California, her native state, that provided her with her richest material.

Whether you’re a newcomer looking for a place to start or a reader looking to dive deeper, here’s a guide to Didion’s writing, start to finish:

Didion was a leading figure of the New Journalism movement in the 1960s and '70s, and she began her career with articles in Life magazine and other publications, capturing the unrest of American life in the postwar era. During her prolific career, she published multiple volumes of essays, nonfiction books, memoirs, novels and screenplays.

“It is easy to see the beginnings of things,” Joan Didion once wrote, “and harder to see the ends.” That author, journalist, style icon, and north star for a certain type of literary young person died today after a prolonged illness.

Joan Didion, Literary Titan, Dies at 87

Didion became renowned for her linguistic froideur, keen insights, and provocative yet elegant prose, writing fiction, nonfiction, and screenplays over the course of her lengthy career. But she saved her most personal subjects for last. Her acclaimed 2005 book, The Year of Magical Thinking, in which she grappled with the unexpected death of her husband, won the National Book Award for Nonfiction. She also attempted to come to terms with the death of her child in 2011’s Blue Nights.
