“When other girls were partying and listening to Cliff Richard and Elvis Presley, I was sitting at home and listening to my father’s friends play Bartók’s string quartets, following with the score in the corner of the room. I was a skinny, serious child with round spectacles and long, dark hair. I was a culture hound as a child, and I didn’t really react against it. Most people react against their childhoods. I think I just carried on.” —Hermione Lee
