I don't know We had 'em when we left Andronico'sMC That's oddAW Ah fuck 'em The important thing is that we're together Let's focus on thinking of something innovative new a bit wildMC Ayelet I have an idea An idea for my next novelAW What?

What are they doing???MC They're living in in BROOKLYNAW gasps It's BRILLIANT My GodMC But not the Brooklyn of today Ayelet no Brooklyn during the middle of the last centuryAW Oh Michael you're a genius No one's ever written a book like that beforeMC You know what else??AW Don't tell me no no do DO Tell me right awayMC These boys they're into comic books I mean REALLY into comic booksAW Comic books? Jewish boys living in Brooklyn in the middle of the last century who're really into comic books? Oh Michael do you think the world is ready for a novel like that? Such a drastic break with the entire history of American literature it could be riskyMC It could be that's true Especially if I mention the NAZISAW It's bold Michael It's bold but I think you should do it You know guys like Jonathan Lethem would give their left nut to come up with ideas like thisMC Guys like Jonathan Lethem don't have my vocabularyAW I bet you get a Pulitzer for this one babeMC I bet I do tooBookster Jessica what the hell is your problem?
