She Had It All

'A Marjorie Williams profile was conspicuous for its almost frightening psychological acuity, its painstaking accumulation of reportorial detail, and its elegant prose. 'Try to be one of the people on whom nothing is lost,' Henry James famously advised aspiring writers. Marjorie didn't just try; she embodied the ideal.'

--from Tim Noah's introduction to a posthumous collection of his wife's writing, The Woman at the Washington Zoo.
