The Salonnière

One might not be able to guess her origin or place the at times peculiar accent, but whatever her past, her current is firmly rooted in Chicago.  She was an avid subscriber to Cat Fancy at six and now immerses herself in the pages of Gastronomica and The New Yorker.  She once proposed to Czeslaw Milosz, has a thing for plants and loves a good meal with waggish creatures.
