Jeremiah Tower remembers Norman Douglas

SFGate special: Tower rembers his friend Norman Douglas, a socialist who carried a hunk of salami, just in case.
Tower writes :”When I was the chef and co-owner of Chez Panisse, Norman’s advice and concern about “what one got” was never out of mind, and the voice of Elizabeth(David) complemented it — as it does these pages, since much of the words are hers.” More pearls await in this little piece.
