Susan Sontag

Two Views by Roger Kimball and Christopher Hitchens Hitchens pro and Gimball con.

When I was a slip of a boy all Sontag's paberbacks featured the wonderfully patronising description of her as "the most intelligent woman in America". I remember thinking that if this was proposed by an anti-Americal misogynist, it might not mean that she was all that intelligent at all.
