Janet Coleman is an author and actor.
My mental snapshots of Michael Goldberg start circa 1968 on an Easthampton bay beach. Its windy, early spring. Our party of daytime drinkers is crouched on the dunes, smoking Gauloises and pot. The one at the shore line pouring the Bloody Marys tells me Goldbergs backstory: Back in the '50s, when he made his precocious reputation, he signed his paintings Michael Stuart.
