Debriefing

Author: Susan Sontag

Reader: Coleen Marlo

Format: 7 CDs (Unabridged)

Illness as Metaphor and AIDS and its Metaphors

Author: Susan Sontag

Reader: Tavia Gilbert

Format: 4 CDs (Unabridged)

In 1978 Susan Sontag wrote Illness as Metaphor, a classic work described by Newsweek as "one of the most liberating books of its time."

Cancer, she argues, is not a curse, not a punishment, certainly not an embarrassment, and it is highly curable, if good treatment is followed.Almost a decade later, with the outbreak of a new, stigmatized disease
