Diaries of Susan Sontag to be Published

The diaries of University of Chicago graduate Susan Sontag will be published in three installments, beginning in December (according to Amazon). The first will be Reborn: Journals and Notebooks, 1947-1963, which begins when Sontag was just 14 and reveals the development of her bisexual orientation. The diaries have been compiled by Sontag's only son, David Rieff, who speaks of the difficulties of compiling such personal material in this Independent article.
