Aliche, “Although, many believe that Babitz’ writing is surprising, Didion’s writing is more powerful and focused.

“Although Didion is excellent in historical context, Eve Babitz’ writing is more effective due to her use of scenes, dialogue, and impressionistic scenes.” Ismael

“Miami” by Didion and “Expensive Regrets” by Babitz. Both writing pieces are beautifully crafted. Joan Didion and Eve Babitz are, without a doubt, two prolific writers that lived through fame and glory. “Miami” was written with new journalism techniques and is somewhat in-between a style of a narrative and informative piece about the position of Cuban exiles on the event known as “The Bay of Pigs Invasion”, as well, touching the opinion of how Miami is more than just a city for immigrants (particularly for Cubans). With Babitz, “Expensive Regrets” is an autobiographical-narrative piece of a moment in Babitz’s life
