  • Information


The Benefactor is Susan Sontag's first book and first novel.

It was originally published in 1963, and introduced a unique writer to the world.

In the form of a memoir by a latter-day Candide named Hippolyte, The Benefactor leads us on a kind of psychic Grand Tour, in which Hippolyte's violently imaginative dream life becomes indistinguishable from his surprising experiences in the 'real world'.
