IRENE ZION is a painter and frame-maker, mother of five, and former childhood playmate of the actor Michael Douglas (well, she took a cruise with him when she was a girl).
She lives in Miami Beach, a pleasant locale except when the temperature is low and female flashers display their wares on escalators.
She often writes about her family, the Zions, who are more interesting than your family, because they have funnier text exchanges. This group includes Sara, who used to eat weird things; her Mercurial son (she can’t recall which); and the dearly-departed-but-never-forgotten Margot.
She and her husband, the sleep-deprived Victor, are world travelers. They have been to Dubai, New Orleans, Chicago, Zimbabwe, and a long long road trip.
Once time, she fell and broke her ribs. This was right before she attended a Fuckerware party, although the two are unrelated.
Oh, and you’re probably completely unaware of this, but Irene is also Lenore‘s mom.
