Joan Didion's Mid-Century Guide To Modern New York

by Geneva Hutcheson · June 8, 2016

Queen of all fashion and journalism with her white corvette, ever so chic packing list, heart-true writing, bird bones, and cashmere shrugs, Joan Didion represents that from which our generation has been irrevocably denied: the capacity to be enigmatic. With ever-present social media you will never wistfully eat a peach on the corner of Lex and such and such uptown street or wonder whether it rained while you were upstairs making cocktails. Indulge in some post-war mentality and take your own bona fide tour of Didion's pre-Dunne New York.
