Reviews

"Susan Sontag's essays are great interpretations, and even fulfillments, of what is really going on." --Carlos Fuentes

"A dazzling intellectual performance." --Vogue

"Susan Sontag is a writer of rare energy and provocative newness." --The Nation

"The theoretical portions of her book are delightful to read because she can argue so well. . . . Her ideas are consistently stimulating." --Commentary

"She has come to symbolize the writer and thinker in many variations: as analyst, rhapsodist, and roving eye, as public scold and portable conscience." --Time
