Only one year into being a publicist (1980), lucky me helped set this photo up backstage (with my mentor, Beverly Magid) when Solters/Roskin/Friedman client Melissa Manchester headlined L.A.’s long-gone Universal Amphitheater. Here are four smart + beautiful women—Melissa, Lily, Dolly, Carole—who have made life richer. This 8 x 10 glossy print was mailed to media outlets when publicists did things like that. I was also lucky enough to be Dolly’s publicist for five years (2007-2012).
