from the 1960s and 70s. My favorite stories were those on her time with the Doors “erotic politicians” while they were in the studio recording; the Getty Museum from 77’ – “the Getty advises us that not much changes… that we are never any better than we are and will never be any better than we were…and odd monument, a palable contract between the very rich and the people who distrust them least.”; the women’s movement at the time in early 70’s that she suspected was “no longer a cause but a symptom”; her piece on Georgia O’Keefe (my favorite from her) being neither crusty nor eccentric… she was hard, a straight shooter, a woman clean of received wisdom and open to what she sees. Her style is character. Also, her days in the Hawaiin islands; Hollywood in the early 70’s; on the road during her book and media tour, her time at Berkely in the 50s; and living and observations of Malibu. Keenly aware undeniably with her surroundings and a vanguard in literature.
