Book Description
Sontag had fought off two previous bouts of cancer and had developed a sense of herself as somehow charmed and able to beat this disease. She also had a huge appetite for experience, and a wild, extravagant desire to live. Rieff details her reaction to her final diagnosis, and the way that her friends and doctors responded to her shock and grief. He writes movingly about being by her side during that last year and at her death, and about his own conflicting feelings of guilt: for not consoling her enough, and for somehow colluding with her in her belief that she could survive.
