520    An extraordinary report on the aftermath of the 1960's in 
       America by the New York Times-bestselling author of South 
       and West and Slouching Towards Bethlehem. In this landmark
       essay collection, Joan Didion brilliantly interweaves her 
       own "bad dreams" with those of a nation confronting the 
       dark underside of 1960's counterculture. From a jailhouse 
       visit to Black Panther Party cofounder Huey Newton to 
       witnessing First Lady of California Nancy Reagan pretend 
       to pick flowers for the benefit of news cameras, Didion 
       captures the paranoia and absurdity of the era with her 
       signature blend of irony and insight. She takes readers to
       the "giddily splendid" Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the 
       cool mountains of Bogot̀, and the Jordanian Desert, where 
       Bishop James Pike went to walk in Jesus's footsteps-and 
       died not far from his rented Ford Cortina. She anatomizes 
       the culture of shopping malls-"toy garden cities in which 
       no one lives but everyone consumes"-and exposes the 
       contradictions and compromises of the women's movement. In
       the iconic title essay, she documents her uneasy state of 
       mind during the years leading up to and following the 
       Manson murders-a terrifying crime that, in her memory, 
       surprised no one.
