Susan Sontag (1933–2004) was the author of numerous works of nonfiction, including the groundbreaking collection of essays, Against Interpretation (FSG, 1966), and of four novels, including In America (FSG, 2000), which won the National Book Award.

Benjamin Taylor is the author of his family memoir, The Hue and Cry at Our House, as well as Proust: The Search in the Yale Jewish Lives series; Naples Declared, a travel memoir; and the award-winning novels, Tales Out of School and The Book of Getting Even.

Taylor is a past fellow and current trustee of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

Review

Praise for Susan Sontag

“The cumulative effect of her writing is to stimulate the flow of argument. . .you might say she has diverted the mainstream; her private islands of thought now look like the territory on which we've always lived. . .She stands for what is articulate, independent, exploratory: for self as a work in progress. ―Hilary Mantel, The Los Angeles Times Book Review

Susan Sontag is a powerful thinker, as smart as she's supposed to be, and a better writer, sentence for sentence, than anyone who now wears the tag 'intellectual.' ―Adam Begley, The New York Observer

[Sontag is] one of our very few brand-name intellectuals. . .the bearer of the standard of high seriousness in a culture that has essentially capitulated to the easy lifting of the ironic mode or the ready clasp of pure entertainment. ―Sven Birkets, The Yale Review

“We wouldn't recognize our postwar intellectual history without Susan Sontag.” ―Talk Magazine

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
