Blue nights

Blue Nights opens on July 26, 2010, as Didion thinks back to Quintana's wedding in New York seven years before. Today would be her wedding anniversary. This fact triggers vivid snapshots of Quintana's childhood- in Malibu, in Brentwood, at school in Holmby Hills. Reflecting on her daughter but also on her role as a parent, Didion asks the candid questions any parent might about how she feels she failed either because cues were not taken or perhaps displaced. "How could I have missed what was clearly there to be seen?" Finally, perhaps we all remain unknown to each other. Seamlessly woven in are incidents Didion sees as underscoring her own age, something she finds hard to acknowledge, much less accept. Blue Nights- the long, light evening hours that signal the summer solstice, "the opposite of the dying of the brightness, but also its warning" - like The Year of Magical Thinking before it, is an iconic book of incisive and electric honesty, haunting and profoundly moving.

  • ""Durante las noches azules uno piensa que el día no se va a acabar nunca. A medida que las noches azules se acercan a su fin (y lo hacen, lo hacen siempre) uno experimenta un escalofrío literal, una visión de enfermedad, en el mismo momento de darse cuenta: la luz azul se está yendo, los días ya se están acortando, el verano se ha ido. Este libro se titula" Noches azules "porque en la época en que lo empecé a escribir sorprendí a mi mente volviéndose cada vez más hacia la enfermedad, hacia la muerte de las promesas, el acortamiento de los días, lo inevitable del apagamiento, la muerte de la luz. Las noches azules son lo contrario de la muerte de la luz, pero al mismo tiempo son su premonición." En su celebrado libro El año del pensamiento mágico, Joan Didion contemplaba cómo los rituales que formaban parte de su vida cotidiana cambiaban drásticamente con la súbita muerte de su marido en 2003. Dos años después su única hija, Quintana Roo, moría a los treinta y nueve años de edad. En su nueva obra, Noches azules, Joan Didion hilvana instantáneas literarias y recuerdos olvidados sobre la vida y la muerte de su hija. Noches azules versa de lo que queda tras la pérdida de un ser querido."
