Hello Pinkwater

I know you come to Albany NY and lurk around every so often, so I thought I might turn you on to a great Italian deli. As you drive downtown from the Bookhouse at Stuyvesant plaza it’s about four blocks down on your right in a minimall. I used to work at the Bookhouse and am glad to see the massive 5 book anthology includes the mighty Alan Mendelsohn, The Boy from Mars, and that your recent works published on line are not deviating from your Chicago beatnik fat boy theme.

Daniel replies:

I know the Bookhouse well, and may know the deli of which you speak. I have noshed extensively up and down that road, the name of which escapes me, and have even sampled the joke bagels at Breugger's.
