Essay by Paloma Lanusse-Broussal | Paris

I spent the month of October with my son Matthew in Paris. He was recently awarded the Ladd Prix de Paris and will be spending the better part of a year there, writing a piece for orchestra. The time gave us the chance to catch up with old friends, among them the 16 year-old daughter of Denise and Jean-Marc, who surprised me at dinner with an essay she’d just completed for school.

I’ve been lucky these past two or three months to have people write kindly about my work, but this piece makes me especially happy.

(Do I need to add that the parents pressured Paloma to show it to me?)

Thank you, Paloma, and bravo!
