The Last Thing He Wanted Audiobook



by Joan Didion

  • Narrated by: Elisabeth Rodgers
  • Length: 5 hrs and 23 mins
  • Release date: 05-07-13
  • Language: English


The legendary author of Play It As It Lays and Slouching Towards Bethlehem here trains her eye on the far frontiers of the Monroe Doctrine, where history dissolves into conspiracy (Dallas in 1963, Iran Contra in 1984), and fashions a moral thriller as hypnotic and provocative as any by Joseph Conrad or Graham Greene.

In that latter year, Elena McMahon walks off the presidential campaign she has been covering for a major newspaper to do a favor for her father. Elena’s father does deals. And it is while acting as his agent in one such deal – a deal that shortly goes spectacularly wrong – that she finds herself on an island where tourism has been superseded by arms dealing, covert action, and assassination.

The Last Thing He Wanted is a tour de force – persuasive in its detail, dazzling in its ambiguities, enchanting in its style.
