About the Author
Susan Sontag (1933-2004) was the author of numerous works of non-fiction, 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.
"These journals present the opportunity to delve deeply into the soul of Susan Sontag....Magnificent." --Nancy D. Kates, San Francisco Chronicle
"If Reborn is Sontag's precocious coming-to, this sequel finds her there, a somebody....She fills her journals with flinty thoughts....It's impossible to read these journals and not experience the warmer side of her ambition: her deep admiration for certain artists around her, her animating wish to encourage and promote." --Emily Greenhouse, The New Yorker
"A little like her criticism, her diary entries combine her interests with bright, aphoristic turns of phrase....These diaries are a reminder of the value of the work that made her great, and also mysterious---partly (and forever)---escaping from view." --The Economist
