From the Publisher:
Moving between Honolulu, Jakarta and Saigon, against the historical backdrop of the final withdrawal from Vietnam, this novel is a bitingly funny, cumulatively devastating post-mortem of our national mores and institutions. A U.S. Senator, his wife, senatorial groupies and international arms dealing intersect with one another in this blistering indictment of American amnesia.
Annotation:
Jack Lovett has a brief fling with 17-year-old Inez Christian; Inez marries a U.S. Senator, but she and Jack meet periodically over the years, all over the world, and eventually run off together. Set during the Vietnam War, Joan Didion's novel is about not only human relations but also the failures of democracy.
Author Bio
Joan Didion
Joan Didion attended the University of California at Berkeley and then moved to New York. She was an editor at Vogue until 1963, when she became a published writer. She married John Gregory Dunne in 1964 and began to collaborate with him on screenplays. They lived in California for many years--where their daughter Quintana Roo was born in 1966--but eventually settled in New York City.

Praise

Los Angeles Times
"A brilliantly maneuvered novel...Didion has accomplished a mix of fictional rush, psychological acuteness and political sting."

London Review of Books
"[Didion's] best and by far the most revealing. DEMOCRACY is a true romance, a love story....The control of breathtaking. The sweet of action, the crowd of characters, are handled with complete authority." - David Thomson 03/18/2004
