I knew a Manus Pinkwater at John Burroughs Junior High in Los Angeles. Was that you? I can’t imagine there were two. All the time I’ve been listening to Daniel Pinkwater, but needed Google to make the connection with Manus.

Anyway, the Manus Pinkwater I knew really impressed me. He and Noel Swerdlow had a copy of Tristram Shandy which they showed me. It was very cool.

Daniel replies:

Actually, Manus Pinkwasser, frequently anglicized to Pinkwater is quite a common name. Noel Swerdlow is an uncommon name. So is Tristram Shandy. Is there a John Burroughs song?
