The Year of Magical Thinking is a memoir from Joan Didion, describing the time after her husband passed away. She gives clear and direct words to the tangle of emotions we experience during a period of mourning.
The last year or so certainly hasn’t been magical, and for far too many people, it has involved the loss of a loved one with its accompanying mourning.
Lyndsay LeClair reads an excerpt from The Year of Magical Thinking to perhaps help those of us who are mourning.
