The Catcher In The Wry

I see that author Susan Sontag has died at 71.

I can think of no more fitting epitaph than the eloquent words of "Crash" Davis, the grizzled catcher in the best-ever baseball movie Bull Durham:

"The novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap."

The fact that Crash (Kevin Costner) says this directly into the face of Susan Sarandon (even if she was only playing a part) makes it even more wonderful.
