Hello Susan

That was shamelessly cribbed from "Swimming in a Sea of Death" by David Rieff, the memoir relating to Susan Sontag's difficult death.

I think the point of the anecdote is that Brecht accepted death, or at least pretended to. This has something to do with giving up a sense of identity. It reminded me of things I have read in Taoism or Zen.
