Norma Gorman

Translator and first wife of JJ's biographer, Herbert Sherman Gorman. Norma Jean Wright was born in Cleveland, Ohio. A journalist, she married Gorman in 1921 in New York, and with him edited The Peterborough Anthology (1923), selections from the MacDowell Colony poets. Her translation of Henri Cami's Le Fils des trois mousquetaires was published in 1930. Friendly with the Colums, she saw the Joyces frequently in Paris after 1930; JJ addressed a comic poem to her. The Gormans divorced in 1931 and, in 1939, she became the second wife of Carl Van Doren, whom she divorced in early 1945, dying herself later that year. John Simpson
