Read full description of the books Reborn: Journals and Notebooks, 1947-1963:I can't imagine Susan Sontag as a young person because I've always encountered her as the staggering, cultured-to-the-umpteenth-degree uber-cosmopolitan critic that she is in her essays. It's hard to imagine someone like that ever being a kid. The journals in Reborn start when she's fourteen and she's already more complicated, moody, and painfully self-conscious than most people four times her age. You don't really see a development here as much as you get these brief, staccato flashes of intensity and yearning as she struggles to interrogate literature, film, her husband, her lesbian affairs, being a single parent, ad infinitum. She has the same voracious, uncompromising intellectual commitment to dissecting her personal life as she does to dissecting culture and art. And she never criticized anything as harshly as she went after herself.
