Let Me Tell You What I Mean
Incisive. There are twelve essays by Joan Didion in a collection titled, Let Me Tell You What I Mean. These pieces were written between 1968 and 2000 and showcase this fine writer’s incisive focus and her concurrent detachment as she presents her views. Her use of language is always a model for aspiring writers, and these essays provide loads of examples of how to write well. Like all great artists, her eye sees something that most of us miss, and that when she shows us what she sees, we can understand better our lives and our world.
