Susan Sontag’s biographer, Benjamin Moser, on looking through the writer’s archives: http://nyr.kr/MARju2
“Reading papers and manuscripts is one thing. Looking through someone’s e-mail is quite another … To read someone’s e-mail is to see her thinking and talking in real time. If most e-mails are not interesting (“The car will pick you up at 7:30 if that’s ok xxx”), others reveal unexpected qualities that are delightful to discover. (Who would have suspected, for example, that Sontag sent e-mails with the subject heading “Whassup?”)”
