Mike Says

  • "The idea is basically that I've improved Pyat's English (as editor) and done what I could with some of the other languages and otherwise left in examples of his half-crazed mixture of languages he's picked up on his travels. He denies any Jewish background but, of course, does break into Yiddish occasionally, and understands it."[1]
