Falling into silence
Back to Diary Index
Looking back over my shoulder to my last days in New York, it seems to be a blur of interviews followed by relief that the film was, finally, out there. From my diary I see that on a beautifully clear and sunny day Joan and I were interviewed together, live, for the Lenny Lopate show, which Joan said she usually listened to every day.

We then did a Q&A for the National Board of Review, that interesting and august body of people whose questions never fail to ignite. I then did a long interview with John Diliberto for the Echoes show on National Public Radio about the soundtrack. Click here to listen to the interview. It was extremely refreshing to have an opportunity to talk about the music in detail to someone so musically knowledgeable and to be able to praise the composers and musicians whose work was brought in to the film, as well as my beloved collaborators who helped to generate the new material.
Then came a talk and book signing with Joan at Barnes and Noble on Union Square. This was a new experience, much less focused in atmosphere than I am used to, because of the customers wandering about and also an extremely loud sound system in the square outside advertising the opening of a cosmetic store. I think we held up pretty well. I liked meeting the people buying the screenplay. Someone had been at home in Massachusetts, had heard us on the Lenny Lopate show, and had driven down (up?) to meet us. Then another screening, another Q&A….
