R.I.P.

Even when I didn't like everything she wrote, I have to say I admired her critiques of academia, and her success in becoming a public intellectual, something of which I feel the U.S. sorely needs more.

She died? Aw, crap. 'The Volcano Lover' was very influential for me.

Yep, leukemia. She was only 71. I really appreciated "Against Interpretation" when I was in college.
