Read in January, 1994

Poor Joan Givner got so much grief for her biography of Porter, but it's really a very good biography. Givner may have been brutally honest about Porter's flaws, but she shows Porter to be all the more interesting for them. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Porter because of how Givner told the story of her life.
