    奇想之年 | The Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion

    《奇想之年》是美国当代标志性作家琼·狄迪恩的深情之作,曾获美国国家图书奖。圣诞节前的几天,约翰和狄迪恩夫妇看着女儿金塔纳病倒了,被送进重症监护病房。在新年夜的前一晚,夫妇俩从医院探望女儿归来、坐在桌边准备吃饭时,约翰突发了致命的冠心病。

    就在一瞬间,狄迪恩失去了共同生活四十年的丈夫……这本充满力量的纪实作品,记录了狄迪恩生命中艰难的一年,讲述内心的痛苦和无助,展现一个人历劫后的重生与成长。《奇想之年》将带领我们直面残忍的考验与别离,并带给我们震撼人心的坚强与勇气。

    From one of America's iconic writers, a stunning book of electric honesty and passion. Joan Didion explores an intensely personal yet universal experience: a portrait of a marriage–and a life, in good times and bad–that will speak to anyone who has ever loved a husband or wife or child.

    Several days before Christmas 2003, John Gregory Dunne and Joan Didion saw their only daughter, Quintana, fall ill with what seemed at first flu, then pneumonia, then complete septic shock. She was put into an induced coma and placed on life support. Days later–the night before New Year's Eve–the Dunnes were just sitting down to dinner after visiting the hospital when John Gregory Dunne suffered a massive and fatal coronary. In a second, this close, symbiotic partnership of forty years was over. Four weeks later, their daughter pulled through. Two months after that, arriving at LAX, she collapsed and underwent six hours of brain surgery at UCLA Medical Center to relieve a massive hematoma.
