In the first of a long series of obfuscations about my person, I pretended to be fifteen to qualify for the contest, when I was just eleven years, seven months, three days and seventeen hours old. At the time I composed Benbassa, I didnt know any Jews, unless one counted the sweltering Rafael Cohen, which no one ...
