Tavia Gilbert's narration is empathetic as she conveys the considerable drama in Susan Sontag's life. Sontag was one of the most interesting thinkers of her time, and Benjamin Moser's intimate biography helps listeners understand how she created and re-created herself. Gilbert does not attempt to create voices for the many friends, enemies, and relatives who are quoted, but it is still fairly easy to keep track of where quotations begin and end. Moser is not afraid of drawing a true picture of Sontag's thoughts and life, both of which were extraordinarily complex. By providing a rounded picture of the woman, he allows listeners to gain a deeper understanding of both. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
