“‘I remember her writing those essays through the night, and listening to Elektra, very loud, with those women screaming. When she was completely wrung out, she’d take a nap on the floor by the typewriter. Two hours – then she was up and at it again.'”

-Richard Howard, on Susan Sontag, quoted by Joan Acocella in The Hunger Artist from the essay collection Twenty-Eight Artists and Two Saints
