Every nonreflexive Banach space can be equivalently renormed in such a way that it is not isometrically a conjugate space. Dixmier  asked: "If A'is isomorphic to a conjugate Banach space, is X isometric to a conjugate space?" Klee  gave a negative solution by giving an equivalent norm for lx under which that space is not isometrically a dual space. Here, we show that such a norm exists for every nonreflexive Banach space. The result is precise since, obviously, if X is reflexive, it isdoi:10.2307/2039469 fatcat:pmeolwtftfbdhgvfn4tdwdpv5q
