Rare Susan Sontag collectible item. A fine copy of the Winter 1995 (Volume 137) Paris Review Interview Issue. Presents the most in-depth Interview with the great writer in late-career, with a ground-breaking body of work behind her. Appears in published form for the very time and has not been collected in book form. Celebrated for its brilliance and tenacity as one of the world's greatest literary publications, The Paris Review is perhaps the most influential and most important of its kind. The Paris Review is best-known for its Author Interviews, which are indispensable to an understanding and appreciation of 20th-century and contemporary literature. But the magazine has also published fiction and essays of the highest quality. "I don't write because there's an audience. I write because there is literature" (Susan Sontag). An absolute "must-have" title for Susan Sontag collectors. This title is a classic Issue. This is one of very few copies still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. Winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant, the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1977 for "On Photography", the National Book Award in 2000 for "In America", and the Jerusalem Prize in 2001. Shimon Peres, in awarding the Jerusalem Prize, described Sontag as "one of the world's finest writers and greatest minds". One of the most influential and important American writer-intellectuals of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER SUSAN SONTAG TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $30.00
