Miami

Miami

Author(s): Joan Didion

Location(s): Miami

Genre(s): Nonfiction

Era(s): Second half 20th Century

This is a surprising portrait of the pastel city, a masterly study of Cuban immigration and exile, and a sly account of vile moments in the Cold War. Miami may be the sunniest place in America but this is Didion’s darkest book, in which she explores American efforts to overthrow the Castro regime, Miami’s civic corruption and racist treatment of its large black community.
