Joan Didion’s classic essay collection Slouching Towards Bethlehem, is among four titles from the author that will be published as eBooks exclusively by indie eBookstore Zola Books this month. In addition, Zola will publish digital editions of works by John Gregory Dunne, Didion’s late husband.
Beginning on November 12th, Didion’s After Henry, Miami, Play It As It Lays, Slouching Towards Bethlehem and The White Album will be available through Zola Books. Digital editions of Dunne’s Crooning, Dutch Shea, Jr., Harp, Quintana & Friends and The Red White and Blue will also come out that day.
Readers can purchase eBooks from Zola Books online and then read them through the Zola Books iOS app. Through partnerships with indie bookstores, Zola customers can “Indie Pledge” their favorite local bookstore, and that store will take in the majority of the profit from the purchase.
