Brings together the best of Joan Didion's nonfiction writing, keynoted by her extraordinary report on life among the hippies of Haight-Ashbury. All of these essays deal, in one way or another, with the atomization of modern life, the sense that "things fall apart, the center cannot hold," and with the new gods, the new ways of living that are replacing traditional ones.
(Key Words: Sociology, Bethlehem, Jews, Irony, Essays).
