About the Author
"An astonishing page-turner, the last word on Susan Sontag. I can't imagine the necessity of another book about her life."-- "Sigrid Nunez, National Book Award-winning author of The Friend"
"Moser's accomplishment here is breathtaking: it includes an extraordinary knowledge of the subject, her milieu, her writings, her ideas, and her friends and family, beautiful prose, extraordinary insights, a capacity to understand her driven emotional life and her stellar intellectual life."-- "Rebecca Solnit, author of Call Them By Their True Names "
"Sontag's influence on aesthetics, writing, and the wider culture is almost impossible to overstate, and Moser's monumental biography reveals the surprisingly tender, insecure, and intellectually dedicated story of one the most remarkable literary figures of twentieth century America. She stands reclaimed for our century in this definitive, fiercely intelligent work."-- "Stephen Fry, author of Heroes"
"Moser brings his iconic subject to life in this gripping, insightful, and supremely stylish biography...revealing at every turn the vital, complicated, imperfect human being behind the formidable public intellectual."-- " Edmund Gordon, author of The Invention of Angela Carter: A Biography"
"Sontag reads like an epic quest, offering a deep and thorough portrait of the intellectual giant that's both dishy and enlightening."-- "Washington Post"
