Ned Rorem in USA - 13 May, 1989

from Lies: A Diary 1986-1999, pages 158-159:

John Adams's Wound Dresser moves me - all the more surprising in that I'd viewed it with a jaundiced eye... I covet Adams's understatement: twenty minutes of slow speech, which I must emulate when it comes to what must be mostly the monologue in Sandy McClatchy's potential libretto.
