As a bride, Norman came to New York with a passionate commitment to social justice and an instinctive recognition of what was great in modern art. She involved herself in activities ranging from the ACLU to the promotion of Alfred Stieglitz's art gallery. In her memoir, she recounts her friendships with photographers and artists like Stieglitz and Noguchi; with political leaders ranging from New York's Mayor William O'Dwyer to Indira Gandhi. In this graceful narrative Norman shares her friends' letters and conversations, revealing not only their brilliance, but her own kindness and inquiring mind. An author and photographer herself, Norman is a model for selfless activity on behalf of others. Her book is a fascinating record of a woman who made an impact on her age. Andrea Caron Kempf, Johnson Cty. Community Coll. Lib., Overland Park, Kan.
