This is an imaginary party I've dreamed up for my Mother, who died in 1980. She could never afford to give parties, but we had those threadbare oriental rugs and a grand piano in the livingroom of my childhood home. I have invited her favorite people: Chopin, Rhett Butler, Heathcliff, Lily Pons, and a couple of Galsworthy's Forsytes. My Dad, always ready to rise when Mama entered a room, is seated with his back to us. Mama never entered a room quietly. Here she makes a flying entrance, interrupting the music, wearing her pink nightie; as usual, a delightful embarrassment. Here's Mama series
