Favorite Didion Quotes

1. "I was really influenced by Joan Didion and Pauline Kael; they were both at the height of their influence when I was coming into my own as a reader."

2. "I teach in M.F.A. programs now, and I think that's a great way to become a novelist, but I mourn that Pete Dexter and Joan Didion's route is maybe less likely because there are fewer of those jobs. I always liken it to playing piano in some great dive jazz bar. You didn't pick the songs, you played what people asked for, but you got your chops."
Author: Jess Walter
3. "Did manage to read some pages from a book that's also about how people can find strength they didn't know they had." "What book was that?" "The Book of Common Prayer," Mom answered. "Didion?" "No, Will." Mom's voice was somewhere between amused and exasperated. "The other one." And then she added, smiling: "Besides, I think the Didion is A Book of Common Prayer, not ‘The Book.'"
Author: Will Schwalbe
