Joan Didion's electrifying first novel is a haunting portrait of a marriage whose wrong turns and betrayals are at once absolutely idiosyncratic and a razor-sharp commentary on the history of California. Everett McClellan and his wife, Lily, are the great-grandchildren of pioneers, and what happens to them is a tragic epilogue to the pioneer experience, a story of murder and betrayal that only Didion could tell with such nuance, sympathy, and suspense.

"The Green River runs wild, free and vigourous from southern Wyoming to northeastern Utah. Edward Abbey wrote in these pages in 1975 that Anne Zwinger's account "of the Green River and its subtle forms of life and nonlife may be taken as authoritative. 'Run, River, Run,' should serve as a standard reference work on this part of the American West for many years to come." ÑNew York Times Book Review

Free spirits or conflicted souls? Three friends embark on a journey but where they end up is their choice. You would expect when you divorced a woman, it meant she would go away. Not so for Eliot, self-made businessman, whose faithless ex-wife is pursuing him once more. She seeks not his heart but a job for her fawned-upon son by a later marriage. But neither she, nor soft-hearted Eliot, suspect the menace that lurks behind the debts the son has accrued. Mike, an ex-soldier, for better or worse decisive in word and deed, is newly remarried but too euphoric to notice how mention of his silly wife kills conversation. And their friend Chris, a professor of history, is toiling deep in error at an official eulogy for his beloved and famous uncle, unknowing of the detestable role his uncle played at reducing his own daughter to madness. On reaching London, each man will have to face his own demons and decisions. Their voyage down the waters of the Thames has reflected back their lives in ways that force them to perceive a wider horizon. But will each of them break free of the past or be dragged down and overwhelmed by his own history?

California and the Melancholic American Identity in Joan Didion’s Novels: Exiled from Eden focuses on the concept of Californian identity in the fiction of Joan Didion. This identity is understood as melancholic, in the sense that the critics following the tradition of both Sigmund Freud and Walter Benjamin use the word. The book traces the progress of the way Californian identity is portrayed in Joan Didion’s novels, starting with the first two in which California plays the central role, Run River and Play It As It Lays, through A Book of Common Prayer to Democracy and The Last Thing He Wanted, where California functions only as a distant point of reference, receding to the background of Didion’s interests. Curiously enough, Didion presents Californian history as a history of white settlement, disregarding whole chapters of the history of the region in which the Californios and Native Americans, among other groups, played a crucial role: it is this reticence that the monograph sees as the main problem of Didion’s fiction and presents it as the silent center of gravity in Didion’s oeuvre. The monograph proposes to see the melancholy expressed by Didion’s fiction organized into four losses: of Nature, History, Ethics, and Language; around which the main analytical chapters are constructed. What remains unrepresented and silenced comes back to haunt Didion’s fiction, and it results in a melancholic portrayal of California and its identity – which is the central theme this monograph addresses.
