I remember Christmas morning 25 years ago when I received the original cast recording of Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd. I listened to the recording from start to finish, mesmerized by the intensity and sophistication of what I had heard. At that age, I didn’t fully understand what drew me to Sondheim’s music so much. Over time, I continued to grow fonder of the intricacies of the way in which he placed each note, perfectly married to its lyrics and using both always as a driving force moving the story line along. His painstaking details and depth of thought that go into his characters are what make his work such a gift to perform.
I arrived in Cape Town, South Africa, on July 4, Independence Day, for the International Boys' School Coalition annual conference.

When Norman Mailer visited the School to offer the Hallowell Literary Lecture in 2000, he encouraged then-Headmaster Joe Cox to offer an award "to the best piece of fiction written during the school year." The literary essay remains a staple of the curriculum, but the English Department is equally interested in fostering personal and creative writing. We find that boys' interest in writing lean, memorable sentences is much higher when they have a personal stake in the matter. The English Department selected "Young Love" by Ethan DeLehman '16 as the 2014-15 winner of the Norman Mailer Literary Award.
