Brutal! (In a 4-star way.) Didion is sharp and pointy and I think she is a curmudgeon - which makes me like her even more. The ennui she conveys through Maria is impeccable. A couple of parts were left far too ambiguous (what is the matter with Kate?) which is why it isn't a 5-star rating. The dialogue is brilliant. This book hurts.
