Some Dreamers of the golden dream is a very descriptive murder mystery by Joan Didion. This essay is full of everything you need to make a great story.

Drugs and extra marital activities should be in every good story, if you ask me. In the story a woman named Lucille Maxwell Miller is convicted for allegedly killing her husband in very unsettling way.


While sleeping in her car he was drenched with gasoline and is seeming unaccidentaly burned to death. She is having a affair with someone else, which sets us up for a, who done it, type of story.

She is determined guilty and sent to The California Institution for Women at Frontera where she remained. Didion does a great job of discribing in great detail the events that unfold in this essay. She also is very good somee telling both sides of the story and keeps you guessing as the story progresses even though the end result is a guilty verdict.
