What could be more appropriate than my mother, Norma Anna Solomon Levine, as the featured woman in chapter one of my forthcoming food memoir COOKING FOR A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN / THE TASTES AND TALES OF A WONDERFUL LIFE. The chapter it titled She Made the Music Start. Here she is during her days as a big band singer in the nightclubs of New York in the 1930s. The manuscript now is in the hands of the book designer and the cover designer.
