Those familiar with Newton's fashion work for Vogue , Elle , etc., his photo essays for Life , or his earlier books will not be surprised by these portraits of celebrities shown as never before. Newton's dancers, designers, and grand dames, indeed "elite society's newsmakers, nightlifers, and would-be transgressors," act a part in dramas he has contrived. From Salvador Dali to Grace Jones to Natassia Kinski (dancing with a Marlene Dietrich doll) to Prince Rainier, Newton's portraits are often shocking, manipulative, and bizarre; they are never boring. Fine, full-page reproductions and Carol Squiers's revealing interview with Newton enhance the work. Ann Copeland, Drew Univ. Lib., Madison,
