"Susan Sontag, Cosmophage" from Wayne Koestenbaum’s "My 1980s & Other Essays"
Does someone ever write something about one of your idols in such a way that it pretty much simultaneously mirrors and destroys anything you could ever say about your idol? And you’re not even mad about it, you’re just so glad to read something that gets it so right?
This book is the greatest. Everyone should read it and then join my Koestenbaum fan club. We’re called The Wayneiacs and our theme song is “Dreaming” by Blondie. X ARS
