Description

Susan Sontag’s brilliant, serious mind combined with her striking image, her rigorous intellectualism and her groundbreaking inquiries into what was then seen as ‘low culture’ – celebrity, photographs, camp – propelled her into her own unique, inimitable category and made her famous the world over, emblematic of twentieth-century New York literary glamour. Benjamin Moser‘s Sontag: Her Life is the first biography based on exclusive access to her restricted personal archives and on hundreds of interviews conducted with many people around the world who spoke freely for the first time about Sontag, including Annie Leibovitz. It is a definitive portrait of an endlessly complex, dazzling woman.

‘Benjamin Moser’s accomplishment here is breathtaking.’ Rebecca Solnit
