A Way of Working

In 1982, Ms. Didion did a series for the New York Review about the American presence in El Salvador. I found an audio recording of her reading from one of those pieces in which she explains that for these pieces, she would "look at something." She would "see what there is, and read what there is to read, and think about it, and see where it takes you."

I love this idea.
