Product description


Magnificent... Her famous seriousness pervades throughout... What's striking is the astonishing scope, potential and possibility Sontag saw in short fiction (Financial Times)

We can't recommend this careful collection enough (Emerald Street)

If you are a bibliophile, you need this beautiful hardback in your life... These superb stories show the sheer versatility of one of this century's most inquisitive minds (Book Riot)

From the Inside Flap

'While the living room is fine for essays, short stories need to be written in the bedroom...'
Susan Sontag was one of the foremost public intellectuals of the twentieth century: an internationally renowned essayist, playwright, novelist, activist, and director who gave the world an immense and invaluable body of work. And throughout her writing life, she turned again and again to the form of short fiction.

Stories draws together all of Sontag's short fiction in one collection for the first time. It is an oeuvre ranging from allegory to autobiography, rich with fragments of life on the fly. Here Sontag dramatizes her private griefs and fears, letting her characters lead where they will, wrestling with problems that defied the limitations of her most famous written form, the essay. The result of this unique, lifelong project is a collection of remarkable versatility, depth and resonance.

Susan Sontag was a visionary, forever working ahead of her time, and in many ways she was always a twentieth century writer speaking to twenty-first century readers - to that new generation of readers who will hear her now. Stories is a work in that same challenging, visionary spirit, as finely calibrated as her greatest work in nonfiction - and it is an essential addition to the legacy of the inimitable Susan Sontag.
