Sontag Book Review: Unlazy Susan


Portrait of American author and critic Susan Sontag (1933-2004)
Portrait of American author and critic Susan Sontag (1933-2004)
Lazy Susans are rotating trays, usually circular, placed on top of a table to aid in moving food on a large table or counter tops.
This term may also refer to corner cabinets on which the shelves are mounted on a vertical axle such that items may be retrieved by pushing on the shelves to turn them. This type is usually found in kitchens. Closed, this type of lazy Susan appears to be two normal cabinets at right angles to each other. When pushed on, the cabinet "doors" reveal the shelves, which are circular except for the ninety degree cutout where the doors are mounted.
The term "Lazy Susan" made its first written appearance in a Vanity Fair advertisement for a "Revolving Server or Lazy Susan" in 1917. Prior to that time they were called dumbwaiters, a term also applied to a type of small elevator for transporting food.
