Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Susan Sontag’s essays are great interpretations, and even fulfillments, of what is really going on.” Carlos Fuentes, New York Times bestselling author
“A dazzling intellectual performance.” Vogue
“Her passing remarks on figures as dissimilar as Taylor Mead, Tammy Grimes, the Beatles and Harpo Marx are alive with a sense of what it is like to watch these performers…She rises to analysis that is nothing less than exhilaratingly shrewd…A ponderable, vivacious, beautifully living, and quite astonishingly American book” New York Times
“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
“The theoretical portions of her book are delightful to read because she can argue so well…Her ideas are consistently stimulating.” Commentary
