Novelist, activist, essayist, playwright, filmmaker, and critic, Susan Sontag was one of the most emblematic writers of the American 20th century, one whose name conjures an immediate image, one so well-known that 15 years after her death, a day rarely goes by without her somehow, somewhere, being mentioned. Ben Moser (Why This World: A Biography of Clarice Lispector) offers the definitive portrait of Sontag, and a single-volume introduction to the American twentieth century, refracted through the life of one of its most extraordinary figures. He is joined by writer, historian and activiist Rebecca Solnit (Hope in the Dark, The Mother of All Things, Men Explain Things to Me).
