Ned Rorem in Paris - 1955

from The Paris Diary: France Again 1955, page 195:

Well, in what country am I? Finally I heard the tape of the Louisville Orchestra playing my Design. The mechanic of the studio said to me afterwards: "But you aren't of your time." But of course, I am of my time, only it is not of me.
