Thread Name: Obit: Writer & Social Critic Susan Sontag Dies
Subject: RE: Obit: Writer & Social Critic Susan Sontag Dies
I never encountered Sontag in the flesh, but I did feel similarly intellectually shabby when I was in the presence of South African writer Nadine Gordimer. Very different sort of intellect than I would ascribe to Sontag, but quite intimidating all the same.
