Odd timing when considered in relation to the Amazon.com situation this week. I 1st read Epistemology of the Closest in Grad School & have returned to it over the years whenever I've needed a refresher before teaching Melville, Wilde or James... or just whenever I needed to refresh my theory stuff in general. She was a good person.
The obit in The Nation is fantastic.
The New Yorker obit is brief but nice also.
The obit in The Advocate is brief and a bit cold, but interesting none-the-less.
