El Salvador, 1982, the height of a ghastly civil war
Joan Didion travels from battlefields to body dumps, interviews a puppet president, considers the distinctly Salvadoran meaning of the verb 'to disappear' and trains a merciless eye not only on the terror there but also on the depredations and evasions of US foreign policy.
Joan Didion is a novelist, essayist and screenwriter. Her books include Slouching Towards Bethlehem, The White Album, Miami, and the recent memoir The Year of Magical Thinking. She lives in New York.
