National Medal of Arts winner Joan Didion takes us back to 1970, when she and her husband John Gregory Dunne went on a Southern sojourn that began in New Orleans. As she describes motels, diners, a deserted reptile farm, a visit with Walker Percy, and a ladies' brunch at the Mississippi Broadcasters' Convention, Didion begins to suspect that the dichotomies of the South, awash in its own tortured history, are a truer reflection of America than the forward-looking optimism of her native California. Also here is her coverage of the 1976 Patty Hearst trial for Rolling Stone—a springboard for musings on the West, its landscape, and the western women who inspired her.
