Book Club Discussion: Blue Nights

Blue-NightsYesterday, G-J, Jane and Trish joined me for our monthly book club discussion on Your Caregiving Journey. In December, we read Blue Nights by Joan Didion. You can listen to our discussion via the player, below.

We ended our discussion with a split vote on whether we’d recommend the book: Two of us would recommend, the other two said, in essence, “No way.”

What do you think? If you’ve read Blue Nights, please feel free to share your thoughts in our comments section, below. And, feel free to join our book club group; this month we’re reading The Four Things That Matter Most: A Book About Living by Ira Byock.

About Denise Brown

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.

    I am a huge Joan Didion fan. Back to Slouching Towards Bethlehem and the White Album. Perhaps because she grew up where I live. But she is the kind of write I have always wante to be. That said, both Blue Nights and Year of Magical Thinking were very hard for me to read. Well written. But very depressing. And she responded to things in a way that was very different than my response would be.
