Susan Sontag

Susan Sontag passed away from leukemia on Tuesday, December 29. K and I heard excerts from two interviews with her during our drive home on Wednesday, which articulated many of our feelings regarding the past two years.

During the 1970's, Susan Sontag was diagnosed with breast cancer. After receiving experimental treatments, she made her way to a full recovery. In 1989, she discusses the impact of the illness on her life and her approach towards life. She reached a point, where she believes that the illness had a positive result on her life. As we drove down the highway, K commented on how articulately and elegantly Susan Sontag expressed her views and how closely K identifies with Sontag’s perspective.
