You can have one without denormalizing. Just use VIEWs and rewrite
RULEs for INSERTs, UPDATEs and DELETEs on them.

The docs already contain an example:
There are excellent reasons not to encourage people to do only half
the job. One part, the smaller part, is presenting an interface which
one part of your OO code can talk to. The other part, and the much
larger one, is having a well-indexed, normalized data store
Example: Under the store-the-compound system you're proposing, how do
you find all the people who have a common prefix? Answer: Normalize.
If you need that answer quickly, you're looking at down time and DDL
changes. The questions you ask about the data are impossible to know
in advance, so normalized data helps you deal with that.
