Product description

Review

“Wise and somber. . .Sontag's closing words acknowledge that there are realities which no picture can convey.” ―Los Angeles Times Book Review

"These literary gems are the perfect stocking-stuffer size for the serious reader on your list; you’ll look smart wrapping up one or all of them." --USA Today

“The history of sensibility in a culture shaped by the mechanical reproduction of imagery....has always been one of the guiding preoccupations of her best work, from Against Interpretation to The Volcano Lover....Regarding the Pain of Others invites, and rewards, more than one reading.” ―Newsday

“For 30 years, Susan Sontag has been challenging an entire generation to think about the things that frighten us most: war, disease, death. Her books illuminate without simplifying, complicate without obfuscating, and insist above all that to ignore what threatens us is both irresponsible and dangerous.” ―O, The Oprah Magazine

“A timely meditation on politics and ethics. . .extraordinary . . .Sontag's insight and erudition are profound.” ―The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Regarding the Pain of Others bristles with a sense of commitment--to seeing the world as it is, to worrying about the ways it is represented, even to making some gesture in the direction of changing it. . .the performance is thrilling to witness.” ―The New York Times Magazine

“A fiercely challenging book. . .immensely thought-provoking.” ―The Christian Science Monitor

“Give one of these adorable mini-editions of classic nonfiction books by women―only slightly larger than a mobile phone―to a bookish friend, and they’ll get lit, literally.”―BUST


“Gorgeous . . . among the season’s sexiest little literary gifts . . . Close-up portraits of the grand dames by illustrator Celia Carlstedt grace the textured, curve-cornered jackets of these pocket-sized volumes (it’s as if they’ve already been gift wrapped).” ―Passport Magazine
