A fire red, now it’s turning blue

7/13/1958

Illicit are the most perfect loves. Close connection between paranoia + sensitivity. The Marquis de Sade’s “apathy therapeutic”. New York : all sensuality is converted to sexuality.

Susan Sontag, Reborn, Journals & Notebooks 1947 1963, edited by David Reiss, FSG, New York
By way of The Purple Diary.

Paranoia? How masochistic! Which makes sense if it came from Sade. I tried to read the Sontag Journals, but never made it past her undergrad years, which for most people are interesting but lacking in clarity.
Will ponder this one.
