Carole vivante

To the memory of Carole Landis, 1919-1948

Whatever the achievements of this Bronx romantic, they are founded on faith in the ultimate harmony between reality and the intuitions of desire, a harmony of which Carole's example has offered me belated assurance. These fragments of my personal encounter with Carole are about me only because they are about her, her gift to me a small part of her gift to the world.
