The White Album, by Joan Didion

Supercontext: an autopsy of media

Release Date: 03/15/2019

This 1979 collection of essays attempts to reveal the 1960s and California as stories without narratives. We discuss how Didion's work was branded because of her gender, class, and lack of politics, despite her insistence that writing was only an attempt to make sense out of chaos.
