Picks and Pans Review: Marry Me!

UPDATED 02/13/1995 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 02/13/1995 at 01:00 AM EST

by Wendy Goldberg and Betty Goodwin

Full of anecdotes about the courtships and proposals of famous couples, this book should be an inspiration to die-hard romantics. It may not advance civilization to know that Colin Powell essentially ordered Alma Johnson to marry him, but it is fun. Other couples discussed include Sigmund Freud and Martha Bernays, Ozzie and Harriet Nelson, and Wayne Gretzky and Janet Jones. Goldberg, a former marketing executive, and Goodwin, a society columnist, don't report on anyone turning down a proposal, but then No! or In Your Dreams! would not have made such catchy titles.
