By Paul Krassner

And but his tales are soulful and philosophical, regularly genuine to his iconoclastic model of non-public journalism.

As paintings Spiegelman acknowledged, “Krassner is without doubt one of the most sensible minds of his generational to be destroyed by means of insanity, ravenous, hysterical, naked—but more often than not hysterical.
