"For me there was no silence before armies.
I was born in Boston Massachusetts on June 10th, 1937, to an Irish
mother and an American father. My mother had come to Boston on a
short visit two years earlier. My father had never been to Europe. She is
a wit and he was a scholar. They met at a dinner party when her earring
dropped into his soup."
