Recalling Deirdre Bair. Sydney Ladensohn Stern on a fantastic biographer and wonderful buddy

Books brought us together, which seems right. Focusing on a biography of Gloria Steinem, we came across Mary Perot Nichols, that has additionally done guide about Steinem. Mary had been a feisty previous Village Voice columnist and town editor, an old mind of WNYC stereo, a longtime ally of Edward Koch, and Deirdre’s friend that is best.

When this occurs, Deirdre ended up being completing her biography of Anais Nin, but if she would consider a blurb since I was using her Simone de Beauvoir biography, I hesitantly asked.
