In Sontag: Her Life and Work, Ben Moser delves into the life of one of the most emblematic voices of the 20th century: Susan Sontag—novelist, activist, essayist, playwright, filmmaker, and one of the most influential critics of her generation. Sontag left a legacy of writing—on art and politics, feminism and homosexuality, celebrity and style, and more. Drawing from the writer’s restricted archives and interviews with those who have remained silent on her until now (including Annie Leibovitz), Sontag crafts a definitive portrait of the writer and explores the insecurity behind her formidable public face. Moser was a finalist for the National Book Critics’ Circle award and a recipient of the 2017 Guggenheim Fellowship.
