When Byron Janis Met Georges Sand’s Granddaughter

Aurore was the granddaughter of Georges Sand. She “was brought up by her grandmother until age 11, when Sand died. After her death, she told me that she decided to completely dedicate her life to her grandmother’s memory. ‘Chopin was an ingrate!’ she told me. ‘My grandmother ran the house solely for him, disrupting all our lives, and yet when he left, there was never any communication from him, not even a letter’.”
