Penny-Joan Dupont


Penny-Joan grew up with her mother. Her father was never mentioned, so she made him up. An unacknowledged painter. And as French as can be. She daydreamt of finding him. He would know, how much she loved caramel, because so did he. She moved to Paris to study arts, and maybe in search of her father. He wasn’t to be found, but she found a man just like him. An unsung artist who often went missing, and smooth-talked her when he returned. He never remembered where he had been, but he always remembered to bring back caramel.
