Sontag is our outstanding contemporary writer in the moralist tradition' Sunday Times'A coruscating sermon on how we picture suffering' The New York Times'A far-reaching set of ruminations on human suffering, the nature of goodness, the lures, deceptions and truth of images . . . in short, a summary of what it means to be alive and alert in the twentieth century' Independent'Sontag is on top form: firing devastating questions' Los Angeles Times'Simple, elegant, fiercely persuasive' MetroOne of America's best-known and most admired writers, Susan Sontag was also a leading commentator on contemporary culture until her death in December 2004. Her books include four novels and numerous works of non-fiction, among them Regarding the Pain of Others, On Photography, Illness as Metaphor, At the Same Time, Against Interpretation and Other Essays and Reborn: Early Diaries 1947-1963, all of which are published by Penguin.
