Particular Passions: Talks with Women who Shaped our Times

Taytana Grosman - On founding ULAE

Lynn GilbertComment

"WHEN MY HUSBAND had his first heart attack in 1955, I knew I had to make a living. I remember one night, it was about two o’clock in the morning, and I was thinking, What shall I do? I hadn’t learned anything, I had no craft. So I said to myself, I have to start something. Probably it will be something I will do for the rest of my life, so it has to be worthwhile for me. I would like to contribute something. Whatever I start, I have to put in it everything, all my life experience, all that I love, and all that I am interested in. I decided I would like to publish. I would like to combine words and images and only words and images that I like." Tatyana Grosman -- Particular Passions: Talks with Women Who Shaped our Times, by Lynn Gilbert.
