Of All the Lines I've Loved Before . . .

Camille Paglia's Sexual Personae is one of the most wonderfully written books I have read. Her sentences (sheesh, now I am self-conscious and will write drivel this whole post) are Fizzies of intelligence. And James Wolcott's site is my current fascinating new thing in Writers' Houses of the Holy.

But it is a line like this

that reminds me just how great Cintra Wilson is. And besides, Christian Bale has been turning me into a dirty old lady lately. (Read the article, and you'll know.)
