"I don't want to make photographs, I want to make windows," says the subject of this fictional biography of a street photographer, single mother, and provocateur who set out to make a name for herself in the late 1950s-early 1960s New York arts scene. Using a natural and direct delivery, and with the help of a few veteran narrators, author Myla Goldberg deftly takes up much of narration herself, telling the story through the artist's daughter's recollections, letters, friends' accounts, and the descriptions of 118 photographs in a retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. The descriptions offer a wonderful testament to the power of the spoken word--the listener can imagine every detail in every photograph. A well-written, adventuresome production. B.P.
