Mémé was a wonderful woman who was given to scarves and worrying and who talked a great deal at night, which is when she liked to have a few glasses of her wine. Talking water, my grandfather called it.

‘The Man Who Danced with Dolls’ is a portrait of a family’s legacy — the language of their memories, the secrets of their buried past, and the subway busker whose wordless dancing punctuates their lives.
