Book Description

In eight stories, this singular collection of short fiction written over the course of ten years explores the terrain of modern urban life. In reflective, telegraphic prose, Susan Sontag confronts the reader with exposed workings of an impassioned intellect in narratives seamed with many of the themes of her essays—the nature of knowing, our relationship with the past, and the future in an alienated present.

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

"These seven stories are cerebral, clever experiments in form," said LJ's reviewer of this 1978 collection, adding that the book was "not for readers who prefer traditional storytelling." Sontag's reputation has grown steadily, so this should still find an audience. (LJ 9/15/78)

"These short stories...establish Sontag's originality in story, her unique vision, her success with experiments in form." --Los Angeles Times

"A fine collection." --Houston Post

"Sontag travels our heartland and writes of it in a telling, shorthand way that is as unusual as it is trenchant." --Publishers Weekly

"All of the eight stories in Susan Sontag's first collection ... are worth reading or reading again. That she is remarkably intelligent, a true intellectual, is as apparent in her fiction as it is in On Photography and Illness as Metaphor."--Chicago Tribune
