The latter had also confided on this subject in Tea or coffee in June. “This year, with the theater, it was very special. I lived and still live for some time alone in the apartment which is less cheerful than when all my children are there, ” he had then lamented. He also added that this separation should last longer “two years”, the time that their eldest daughter spends the equivalent of the baccalaureate in the United States. “The house is still Paris, what, don’t mess around,” he had then concluded.
