Boil 1.25

Also see Terry Castle's exorcism/ summoning of Susan Sontag's ghost in her LRB article. The title 'Desperately seeking Susan' is a little gratuitous, considering that Madonna is still alive. And kabbalistic. But these mix-ups happen even to us English professors -when at a snooty dinner party (replete with Laurie 'Angel' Anderson's and Lou 'Arrrgh' Reed's attendance) Sontag introduces Castle "with the soul-destroying words, ‘Terry is an English professor’". No harm done.
