Letters from Abroad
My sister’s letters home to Australia said nothing of a condemned building, a clapped out elevator, paint peeling walls and six flights of stairs reeking of urine.
Instead her letters told of a penthouse with views of the Seine, the breakthrough singing role, the riotous applause of her debut.
Gran constantly asked her for a programme. Mum begged for publicity shots of her Opera Star Daughter to wave like Dior perfume under the nose of her customers. I’m expected to bring back these sacred artefacts they have never received.
No doubt my sister will be very surprised to see me.
