Description

The sixteen essays gathered here represent the last pieces written by Susan Sontag in the years before her death in 2004. Reflecting on literature, photography and art, post-9/11 America and political activism, these essays encompass the themes that dominated Sontag's life and work, revealing why she remains one of the twentieth century's pre-eminent writers and thinkers. 'One of America's greatest public intellectuals.' Observer 'Excellent and essential.' Financial Times 'reads like a greatest-hits album - a little politics, something on photography, some lit. crit - of Sontag's passions.' Daily Telegraph 'Crosses the spectrum of her preoccupations, from ethical and aesthetic reasoning through literary analysis to political comment.' Sunday Herald 'Sontag's clear thinking . . . shines like a spotlight in dark places.' The Times
