    LA PAROLA PERFETTA Pubblicato nel 1984, Democracy il quarto romanzo di Joan Didion, da molti considerato il suo migliore.Forse il migliore lo davvero, ma comunque una bella gara, sono uno pi bello dell altro.Scrive Edoardo Nesi Non sono mai stato capace di decidere se dell opera narrativa di Joan Didion ammiro pi l esattezza chirurgica dello stile o il distante calore delle lievi, sospese trame le esemplari descrizioni dei cieli e del sole e del

    Damn, so many of the reviews for this book are terrible I kind of want to get a gazillion votes for this review just so that it will come before some of the nonsense in the other reviews Any talk of post modernism or meta fiction or there being too many characters in this novel there aren t that many, than say the one in certain Beckett works, but less than in a Dickens or Pynchon novel , also plug the ears in your head that listen when you are reading t

    At first sight the words charm and harm differ in one letter only but the contrast in their meaning is dramatic Strangely enough, Democracy by Joan Didion has charmed me and harmed me at the same time Democracy has charmed me The first thing that enchanted me instantly was Joan Didion s writing style I ve never experienced anything like that before The unsettling, highly addictive rhythm of her sentences, with many cadenced repetitions and anaphoras, resonated w

    When I first read this book in 1984 I was absolutely staggered Immediately, I flipped back to the beginning and read it again I m sure I ve read it a couple of times since, and this latest re read has merely confirmed that this must be my all time favorite book Although I ve been land locked for the past number of years, I am in essence a person of the Pacific, and Didion s book IS the Pacific.Still, it s a complicated little book and demands from the reader than mos

    The first meeting of Inez Christian and Jack Lovett at the ballet the beginning of Lovett s grave attraction that would last over twenty years is the sexiest scene I ve read in a while Cissy Christian smoking a cigarette in her white jade holder Inez, wearing dark glassespinning and repinning a gardenia in her damp hair This is our niece, Inez, Dwight Christian said Inez, Major Lovett Jack Inez, Mrs Lovett Carla A breath of air, a cigarette This champagne is lukewarm One g

    Solitudine emotivaDal punto di vista estetico, il libro piacevolissimo, scritto in modo ricercato ma molto scorrevole Le frasi sono brevi e quella che segue spesso definisce meglio la precedente, lasciando il tempo al lettore di assaporare l immagine o l idea Si vede bella gente che si muove in splendide ville con giardini e piscine o alberghi di lusso, su sfondi tropicali.Le difficolt della vita sono smussate da amici e collaboratori che offrono drink e cercano voli e sistemazioni

    Structurally this book sort of demolished my mind I m in awe.

    At nearly the halfway point the Intermission of Democracy Didion, in a meta moment warns or reminds the reader with I am resisting narrative here She s not lying Actually, the reader is placed on notice as early as chapter 2 where the author seems triggered by some images from a Wallace Stevens poem toward writing, in a half assed way, a novel But, c ards on the table, she informs the reader she s at a point in her life where she Didion lacks certainty But Vietnam, even ten years out De

    Aloha oeSofisticata, enigmatica, esotica, raffinata.Questa potrebbe essere la descrizione di Inez Victor, la protagonista di Democracy.Ma si potrebbe dire le stesso di Honolulu, teatro di gran parte della storia.O di Saigon.O di Giacarta.O anche, per certi versi, di Joan Didion.O della sua scrittura.Affascinante, affascinanti.Succede a Honolulu, dunque, ma non solo, e la sensazione predominante, quella che resta, quella che lascia un retrogusto amaro, di aver assistito a una rappresentazione da dietro l
