Product Description

Debriefing collects all of Susan Sontag's shorter fiction, a form she turned to intermittently throughout her writing life. The book ranges from allegory to parable to autobiography and shows her wrestling with problems not assimilable to the essay, her more customary mode. Here she catches fragments of life on the fly, dramatizes her private griefs and fears, lets characters take her where they will. The result is a collection of remarkable brilliance, versatility, and charm. Sontag's work has typically required time for people to catch up to it. These challenging works of literary art—made more urgent by the passage of years—await a new generation of readers. This is an invaluable record of the creative output of one of the most inquisitive and analytical thinkers of the twentieth century at the height of her power.

Reviews/Praise

"Sontag’s stories can be arch, smart, and elegant—if sometimes a touch arid. For all that, a welcome collection." —Kirkus Reviews

"The first complete collection of the late Sontag’s stories affirms both the range and depth of her literary gifts." —Publishers Weekly
