Teaser Tuesday: The Last Thing He Wanted by Joan Didion



In the second place this American woman was eating, very slowly and methodically, first a bite of one and then a bite of the other, a chocolate parfait and bacon. The chocolate parfait and bacon had definitely bothered him.

-- The Last Thing He Wanted by Joan Didion. I want to read more of Didion's books because I think her novel, Play it As it Lays, is a knockout. Her memoir, The Year of Magical Thinking, is also excellent. I consider both to be contemporary classics.



Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by The Purple Booker, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Not a combination I would choose.

Not a combination I would choose either. Love chocolate. Love bacon. But not together.

I think that there's nothing that doesn't go with chocolate. Or, for that matter, that doesn't go with bacon. ;-) So bring it on together!

Joan Didion is really one of the 20th century's great writers.

Oooh, I've got The Year Of Magical Thinking calling to me from my to-be-read shelf! Can't wait!

I have to say that, as much as I love both chocolate and bacon, I can't say the combination appeals to me!

I'm not sure the two go together, either!
