    Description: The only transformation that interests me is a total transformation- however minute. I want the encounter with a person or a work of art to change everything.' Brazen, brilliant and deeply searing, Sontag's diaries wrestle with the profound - exploring ideas and subjects as far-reaching as writing, war, desire and consciousness. From the graphic destruction of war-torn Vietnam to her tumultuous romantic affairs, in the second volume of her diaries, Sontag is profoundly candid and insightful. This instalment charts the years when Sontag wrote the majority of her renowned essays, including the ground-breaking Against Interpretation in 1966. Riveting and enlightening, As Consciousness is Harnessed to Flesh illuminates the mind of one of the twentieth century's most significant intellectuals. 'Her diary entries combine her interests with bright, aphoristic turns of phrase. These diaries are a reminder of the value of the work that made her great, and also mysterious. 'The Economist' It is a rare pleasure to read, in her diary, discoveries being made in real time. She applies her mind to itself with enthusiasm' The Guardian' In its fragmentation and incoherence and passion, its combination of the erudite and the everyday, it is more true to life, both intellectual and emotional, than the most artful novel or careful biography. It may well be that Sontag's diaries, like Virginia Woolf's (which she knew and admired) will come to be seen as just as brilliant and important as anything she wrote.' The Telegraph.

    Description: Published in its entirety for the first time, a candid conversation with Susan Sontag at the height of her brilliant career'A humanizing interview with the late cultural icon, who was often perceived as a fiercely aggressive and polarizing intellect." | ?? Kirkus Reviews Susan Sontag, one of the most internationally renowned and controversial intellectuals of the latter half of the twentieth century, still provokes. In 1978 Jonathan Cott, a founding contributing editor of Rolling Stone magazine, interviewed Sontag first in Paris and later in New York. Only a third of their twelve hours of discussion ever made it to print. Published more than three decades later, this book provides the entire transcript of Sontag's remarkable conversation, accompanied by Cott's preface and recollections. Sontag's musings and observations reveal the passionate engagement and breadth of her critical intelligence and curiosities at a moment when she was at the peak of her powers. Nearly a decade after her death, these hours of conversation offer a revelatory and indispensable look at the self-described besotted aesthete and obsessed moralist.'I really believe in history, and that's something people don't believe in anymore. I know that what we do and think is a historical creation. We were given a vocabulary that came into existence at a particular moment. So when I go to a Patti Smith concert, I enjoy, participate, appreciate, and am tuned in better because I've read Nietzsche."' There's no incompatibility between observing the world and being tuned into this electronic, multimedia, multi-tracked, Mc Luhanite world and enjoying what can be enjoyed. I love rock and roll. Rock and roll changed my life. You know, to tell you the truth, I think rock and roll is the reason I got divorced. I think it was Bill Haley and the Comets and Chuck Berry that made me decide that I had to get a divorce and leave the academic world and start a new life." .
