“The only interesting answers are those that destroy the questions.” ~ Susan Sontag

Susan Sontag was an American writer, filmmaker, teacher, and political activist.

A human rights activist for more than two decades, Susan Sontag served from 1987 to 1989 as president of the American Center of PEN, the international writers’ organization dedicated to freedom of expression and the advancement of literature, from which platform she led a number of campaigns on behalf of persecuted and imprisoned writers.

Her stories and essays appeared in newspapers, magazines, and literary publications all over the world, including The New York Times, The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, The Times Literary Supplement, Art in America, Antaeus, Parnassus, The Threepenny Review, The Nation, and Granta. Her books have been translated into thirty-two languages.

Today’s Action: When in a debate did you destroy the question? Write about your moment of glory.
