New York: Simon & Schuster, 1979. First edition. A very good book in near fine dust jacket. Evidence of bookplate removed from the front free endpaper. Some toning to the jacket edges and minor wear to the foot of the jacket."Didion manages to make the sorry stuff of troubled times (bike movies, for instance, and Bishop James Pike) as interesting and suggestive as the monuments that win her dazzled admiration (Georgia O'Keeffe, the Hoover Dam, the mountains around Bogota). . . A timely and elegant collection," the New Yorker magazine enthused when this book was published.
