Writing style and themes[ edit ] In a notorious essay published in called "Joan Didion: Only Disconnect", Barbara Grizzuti Harrison called Didion a " neurasthenic Cher " whose style was "a bag of tricks" and whose "subject is always herself.

    I'm like a caged peacock, yearning for the wind on my haunches. Blue Nights is a horrifying documentary of a writer observing herself in the moment of dissolution, when she can't remember how to write, can't wholly remember who she is. And you can keep it at bay by always keeping it in your eye line. She and her quasi-lover Trinculo a man who was gay on Earth but can now desire Christine in their new, disembodied world engage in a kind of bawdy banter that arouses them both into an apparently orgasmic state. Christina writes that as she grew older and more difficult to control, Joan found excuses to remove Christina from the home by sending her to various boarding schools and strict religious academies, often specifying in her instructions that Christina must be allowed no contact with the outside world. I just couldn't do that to them and I was going it alone.
