FROM THIS EPISODE

where_stress_falls.jpgWhere the Stress Falls (Farrar, Straus & Giroux)
Where does the stress fall in the life of a writer-intellectual? Susan Sontag examines the difference between exploring the interior of a subject and exploring the interior of the explorer. She speaks of ego-less impersonality as a goal, while acknowledging the unfortunate probability of self-revelation. (This interview will not air on KCRW because of special holiday programming.)
