Description
In this second of three volumes of journals (following Reborn) National Book Critics Circle award winner Susan Sontag recounts her experiences in the turbulent 1960s—from a trip to Hanoi at the peak of the Vietnam War to the publication of her groundbreaking Against Interpretation—up to 1981 and the beginning of the Reagan era. In her characteristically erudite manner, Sontag muses upon motherhood, her sexuality, literary themes, and her close friendship with Joseph Brodsky, while revealing herself to be an aficionado of lists: groceries, movies, cemeteries, and fascist writers.

"What ultimately matters about Sontag … is what she has defended: the life of the mind, and the necessity for reading and writing as ‘a way of being fully human.'"—Hilary Mantel
