Dear Mr Pinkwater!

Do you mind if I translate some of your books into Chinese? I’m thinking of doing it (not publishing it, just translate it so that my friends can read it) because there are a lot of people out there who don’t know what a cool/funny book is like. By the way I got heavily into chess ever since I read ‘The Education of Robert Nifkin’. Thank you very much.

Daniel replies:

I can't stop you, so I'll say I'd be honored...only you mustn't print it or sell copies! You need special permission for that. I am looking forward to Chinese readers, (if possible all of them), buying my work.
