    This posthumous volume gathers sixteen essays and addresses written in the last years of Susan Sontag's life. A consummately fearless thinker, Sontag's writings published here reflect on the personally liberating nature of literature, her deepest commitment, and on political activism and resistance to injustice as an ethical duty. She considers the works of writers from the little-known Soviet novelist Leonid Tsypkin to the greats, such as Nadine Gordimer. Sontag also addresses the dilemmas of post-9/11 America, from the degradation of our political rhetoric to the appalling torture of prisoners at Abu Ghraib. 224p.

  • Growing Up Absurd: Problems of Youth in the Organized Society (New York Review Books Classics)

    Paul Goodman’s Growing Up Absurd was a runaway best seller when it was first published in 1960, and it became one of the defining texts of the New Left. Goodman was a writer and thinker who broke every mold and did it brilliantly—he was a novelist, poet, and a social theorist, among a host of other things—and the book’s surprise success established him as one of America’s most unusual and trenchant critics, combining vast learning, an astute mind, utopian sympathies, and a wonderfully hands-on way with words.For Goodman, the unhappiness of young people was a concentrated form of the unhappiness of American society as a whole, run by corporations that provide employment (if and when they do) but not the kind of meaningful work that engages body and soul. Goodman saw the young as the first casualties of a humanly re­pressive social and economic system and, as such, the front line of potential resistance. Noam Chomsky has said, “Paul Goodman’s impact is all about us,” and certainly it can be felt in the powerful localism of today’s renascent left. A classic of anarchist thought, Growing Up Absurd not only offers a penetrating indictment of the human costs of corporate capitalism but points the way forward. It is a tale of yesterday’s youth that speaks directly to our common future.

    In her preface to Robert Walser’s Selected Stories, Susan Sontag describes Walser as “a good-humored, sweet Beckett.” The more common comparison is to “a comic Kafka.” Both formulations effectively describe the reading experience in these stories: the reader is obviously in the presence of a mind-bending genius, but one characterized by a wry, buoyant voice, as apparently cheerful as it is disturbing.Walser is one of the twentieth century’s great modern masters—revered by everyone from Walter Benjamin to Hermann Hesse to W. G. Sebald—and Selected Stories gives the fullest display of his talent. “He is most at home in the mode of short fiction,” according to J. M. Coetzee in The New York Review of Books. The stories “show him at his dazzling best.”

    • Published: September 2003
    Written between 1977-1980, the novel is a lost masterpiece, whose author never saw a single page of his literary work published during his lifetime. In it, a narrator is in a train going to Leningrad, mid-April 1867; also aboard are the newly wed Dostoyevskys, Fydor and Anna, who are on their way to Germany for a trip that will keep them abroad four years. Neither fantasy nor docu-novel, the book gets everything right due to its author's obsession with the details of Dostoyevsky's life. 176p. Pap.
