Titulo del libro: Stories: Collected Stories
Los cuentos completos de Susan Sontag, uno de los escritores más brillantes e influyentes del siglo XX, reunidos por primera vez, se recuerda a Susan Sontag como un brillante ensayista: inquisitivo, analítico, audazmente abierto. Sin embargo, durante toda su vida, también escribió relatos cortos: ficciones que lucharon con esas ideas y preocupaciones que no pudo abordar en forma de ensayo. Estas ficciones breves son alegorías, parábolas, viñetas autobiográficas, cada una de las cuales captura un fragmento auténtico de la vida, dramatizando los dolores y temores privados de Sontag. Las historias recopilan toda la ficción corta de Sontag por primera vez. Esta colección asombrosamente versátil muestra a su incomparable escritor a la altura de sus poderes. Para cualquier fan de Sontag, es un testimonio ineludible de sus logros creativos.
