Sontag: Her Life and Work Reviews

  • Loring Wirbel
    I found it a little bit odd that some reviewers of the ARC of this book complained that they did not want to waste 700 pages reading about such a difficult person.

    10/30 - this biography has inspired me to revisit some of the essays in Where the Stress Falls... dismaying. There comes a time to put away childish things. This is kitsch. ‘Culture’ as kitschy Europhilia, that’s what Sontag really stood for in the end. Long past time to read Pierre B...
