London Review Bookshop

One of the great thinkers of the twentieth century, Susan Sontag’s writing – on art and politics, feminism and homosexuality, celebrity and style, medicine and drugs, radicalism, Fascism, Freudianism, Communism and Americanism – forms an indispensable guide to our modern world. Benjamin Moser’s Sontag: Her Life is the first biography based on exclusive access to her restricted archive, providing fascinating insights into both the public myth and private life of an endlessly complex individual.

Moser will be at the shop to discuss Sontag’s life and legacy with Lauren Elkin, author of Flâneuse: Women Walk the City in Paris, New York, Tokyo, Venice and London.
