An Old Acquaintance, if you will

I’m the person who made that Daniel Pinkwater song or audio art or whatever you may call it for your first podcast, a long long time ago (in my shortsighted eyes). I’ve grown into an almost-adult now, and I’m rereading Five Fantastic Novels, and I have to say that your young adult literature is wondrous. I look up to your characters, as something of a misfit myself, although I’ve come to function better in society as I’ve grown older. Is Hogboro based on Hoboken, or is it an amalgam of edge-of-New York City sorts of places, or something else altogether? Are you mocking Dada in Young Adult Novel, or mocking the Dada Ducks’ interpretation thereof? I have many other questions, but I will ask them some other time.

Daniel replies:

Hog Butcher for the World,

Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat,

Player with Railroads and the Nation's Freight Handler;

Stormy, husky, brawling,

City of the Big Shoulders


It is impossible to mock dada.
