Joan Didion’s Miami

Published in 1987. As Didion follows Miami’s drift into a Third World capital, she also locates its position in the secret history of the Cold War, from the Bay of Pigs to the Reagan doctrine and from the Kennedy assassination to the Watergate breakin. Miami is not just a portrait of a city, but a masterly study of immigration and exile, passion, hypocrisy, and political violence.
Point 1: Although it reads like a novel populated with stock characters, Miami is a nonfictional piece of literature. At the time of its publication, it was classed under Current Events. Impressively, Didion moved to Miami in order to get a firsthand account of the changing Miami.
Point 2: If you happen to live in a city with a generous Spanishspeaking population, happen to speak Spanish yourself, or have spent a significant amount of time in MiamiDade county (weeklong vacations do not count), then the narrator’s pronunciation of certain words will annoy you because of how obvious the mispronunciations are. The good thing is that her voice is clear and you don’t have audible breathing like when listening to audiobook recordings by old men.
Point 3: In listening to (or reading) this book, you will see that Didion has a definite style of speech. You may be like me and not care for her nonrhythmic, repetitive delivery; however, I recommend you keep reading, because upon reflection you will learn that there are reasons for the emphases.
Point 4: As a piece of literature, I like (not love or underwhelmed by) the book. While the portrayal of Miami is one I am unaccustomed to (perhaps due to my age or my home being north of Miami’s city limits), I still recommend the book. I alternated between reading and listening to Miami because I didn’t want driving to interrupt the compelling narrative. As a result, I will look into Didion’s other books.

Joan Baez – Fare Thee Well Abschiedstour – Live @ Pariser Olympia 13.6.2018 (COMPLETE HD CONCERT)


JOAN BAEZ gab auf ihrer „FARE THEE WELL“Abschiedstournee im Juni 2018 auch zehn (ausverkaufte) Konzerte im Pariser Olympia. Gemeinsam mit ihren Fans lässt die FolkIkone sechs Jahrzehnte Musik Revue passieren. Ein einzigartiger, emotionsgeladener Abend.
Für Joan Baez gehören Musik und gesellschaftliches Engagement zusammen. Die Sängerin zählt zu den herausragenden Figuren der Gegenkultur: Sie hat in Woodstock gesungen, ihre Stimme gegen den VietnamKrieg erhoben, an der Seite von Martin Luther King demonstriert und immer wieder Diktaturen auf der ganzen Welt angeprangert. Anliegen, für die sich die Amerikanerin heute genauso leidenschaftlich einsetzt wie in der 60er Jahren.
Anfang 2018 brachte Joan Baez zur großen Freude ihrer Fans ein neues Album heraus: „WHISTLE DOWN THE WIND“. Zehn Jahre zuvor hatte sie auf „Day After Tomorrow“ Songs von Tom Waits, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Josh Ritter und anderen eingespielt. Im Olympia stehen ihre neuen Lieder sowie ihre bekannten Hits und Kompositionen von Bob Dylan auf dem Programm. Neues, Altes und Coverversionen – was will man mehr bei einer Abschiedstournee? GOODBYE, JOAN!
