May 10, 2017: I confess to coming late to the Joan Didion Appreciation Society (membership: a squillion), but I’m now a proud figurative-card-carrying member, thanks to her new book, South and West: From a Notebook, which V magazine was swell enough to let me write about in V106, the out-now issue. (I’ll give you a direct link to the story if they post it online, m’kay?) Anita Pallenberg, Jackie Susann, Tippi Hedren, Joan—please keep letting me write about old broads, guys. (You know by now that I’m living in another time, right?)
