When from Lebanon
Jessica Semaan

Dear Jessica,

Yes, you are wright, Lebanese are special… and they are not. Hahaha. A translated quotation, by memory: the character is King Ferrante, he just had a 1rst heart attack, and is expecting a fatal 2nd one soon, from La Reine morte by playwright Henri de Montherlant: “ Before the sword (death) comes again and crushes me, may it finally cut loose this dreadful knot of contracdictions inside me so that a moment before never existing any more I finally may know who I really am.”

All the best,
