About the Author:

SUSAN SONTAG immediately became a major figure of our culture with the publication in 1966 of the pathbreaking collection of essays Against Interpretation. She went on to write four novels, including the National Book Award-winning In America, as well as a collection of stories, several plays, and seven works of nonfiction. She died in New York City on December 28, 2004.

REBORN
1947 11/23/47  
I believe: (a)That there is no personal god or life after death (b)That the most desirable thing in the world is freedom to be true to oneself, i.e., Honesty (c)That the only difference between human beings is intelligence (d)That the only criterion of an action is its ultimate effect on making the individual happy or unhappy (e)That it is wrong to deprive any man of life [ Entries "f" and "g" are missing.] (h)I believe, furthermore, that an ideal state (besides "g") should be a strong centralized one with government control of public utilities, banks, mines, + transportation and subsidy of the arts, a comfortable minimum wage, support of disabled and age[d]. State care of pregnant women with no distinction such as legitimate + illegitimate children. Preface copyright © 2008 by David Rieff

Book Description Picador, 2009. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Susan Sontag's compulsively readable early private notebooks have it all--sex, scandal, and scintillation. . . . Her arch self-awareness will make you laugh aloud."--Miranda Purves,Elle"A portrait of the artist as a young omnivore, an earnest, tirelessly self-inspecting thinker fashioning herself into the phenomenon she will be. . . . Her journal is her true first book, the story of a woman struggling with her consciousness."--Richard Lacayo,Time "The assurance and skill with which Sontag expresses herself is also truly striking. . . . One can recognize, in the earliest entries, the author of her essays, which are remarkable for their clarity, poise, liveliness, unexpectedness, and confidence--to say nothing of the range of fact and references that inform and anchor their arguments."--Deborah Eisenberg,The New York Review of Books"A fascinating document of Sontag's apprenticeship, charting her earnest quest for education, identity and voice."--Darryl Pinckney,The New Yorker"An evolutionary history of an insatiable mind."--O, The Oprah Magazine"An electrifying record of Sontag striving to become Sontag."--Donna Seaman,Booklist.
