  • In a box of my old papers I find: A lurid card of flamenco dancers in Seville, a black and white picture of Malcolm X, one of my dad in a ship's cabin writing a letter with a Parker 51 fountain pen, another of Lee Miller dressed in combat gear and smoking a cigarette next to some gasoline canisters, a colour photograph I took of Pedro Albizu Campos's house, now demolished, in Old San Juan, and a 1994 copy of Time Magazine with a picture of Jackie Kennedy on the cover on the occasion of her death.
