Read full description of the books The Last Thing He Wanted:Re-read. I admired this on my first reading, but I also under-rated it. This is as accomplished as any of Joan Didion's novels and one of the finest political thrillers (among many other things) I've encountered. On first reading, I went too fast, letting myself get pulled along by the rhythmic riptide of the prose. On a second read, crucial background details became more apparent and the love story that's slipped almost imperceptibly into the crux of the narrative made complete sense. This is the rare novel that's politically savvy, propulsively plotted, structurally inventive, and aims to subvert literary conventions as actively as any dogma. It's an examination of America's ruthless role in Central America in the mid-'80s which serves as both mirror and microcosm for so much else.
