About the Author:

Susan Sontag (1933–2004) was an American writer, literary critic, and political activist. She is best known for her groundbreaking collection of essays, Against Interpretation (1966), as well as her critical study On Photography (1977), which won a National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism. Her book Trip to Hanoi (1968) was written as a protest against the Vietnam War. She also wrote short stories, plays, and four novels, including The Volcano Lover (1992) and In America (1999), which won a National Book Award for Fiction. While fighting cancer, Sontag wrote Illness as Metaphor (1979), a brilliant examination of the imagery in the discourse of illness. Her later critical works include AIDS and Its Metaphors (1988) and her final book, Regarding the Pain of Others (2003).
