Publisher's Summary

"I intend to do everything...I shall anticipate pleasure everywhere and find it too, for it is everywhere! I shall involve myself wholly...everything matters!" This first selection from Susan Sontag's diaries (from 1947-1963) takes us from early adolescence through to when Sontag was in her early 30s. It is an astonishingly affecting and honest self-portrait which is also a fascinating, revealing account of an artist and critic being born. We see Sontag honing her skills and fashioning herself, by a supreme act of will, into an intellectual force.

Performed well. But...

As with any journal, not every day is full of gender bending and social revelations. If you want a glimpse into her life this is it. But it's not going to change your life.

You are in the right place

Fantastic effort. One of the few diaries I can listen to in audio form. I sometimes listen to it while following the written version.
