Eugene O'Neill says man is born broken and life is mending. The grace of God is glue. Susan is the only person I know who found the grace of God within herself. She glued herself from all these broken pieces. [Susan came] without history. Susan rejected her history. Even when she said she was a Jew, I can't say she meant it the way I would. She has to invent history. I didn't have to invent myself. I do it in books. Her writing and her being are one and the same. It's magic to be Susan Sontag in her writing and in her life. She is like a moving land, a moving country, a moving entity.
