Joan Didion is an American writer. She was born in Sacramento, California and lives in New York City.

Didion is the author of five novels and seven books of non-fiction. Her collections of essays, Slouching Toward Bethlehem (1968) and The White Album (1979) made her a famous observer of American politics and culture. Didion's most recent book Where I Was From (2003) is the most autobiographical of her works. It contains both new and collected essays, all of them reflections on California mythologies, and on the author's somewhat complicated relationship to her birth place.

Didion graduated from U.C. Berkeley in 1956 and has one child, a daughter, Quintana Roo Dunne, who was adopted at birth.

She contributes regularly to The New York Review of Books and The New Yorker. Didion also collaborated with her late husband, writer John Gregory Dunne, on screenplays.
